Knoxville, Tenn. – The Grassroots Outdoor Alliance, along with apparel brand Horny Toad are trying to raise enough money to pay for 500 days of children's outdoor education. The education programs will be administered by IJAMS, a nature center based in Knoxville, Tennessee. The center encourages environmental stewardship by providing an urban green space.
The fundraiser is posted on Fundly, a crowdsourcing site similar to Kickstarter. Money will go to providing summer camps and school programs that emphasize hands-on learning via activities like hiking. The fundraiser ends on Nov. 18.
