Grant County

Fresh Air and Nature for John Day Students

Grant County makes for a wonderfully rural, country life. Children from this stretch of our state grow up surrounded by agriculture and wilderness. While it may be easy to otherwise assume, students from Grant County don’t necessarily have unlimited access to the outdoors. Lottery dollars help support Outdoor School for Grant County School District #3 students to the tune of $14,370 in 2019. These funds went a long way to provide field trips to natural fields, waterways, farms and forests in the area.

Outdoor School - Worm Studies

How the Worm Turns

The North Fork John Day Water Council took outdoor learning a step further by providing vermicomposting bins to the classroom. Inside of these bins, students observe how worms – natural recyclers – turn leftover food into fertilizer for plants. More growth is ahead, as rural communities like John Day grow in size and in the students’ curiosity for science. When you play Lottery games, you help do good things happen for rural Oregon.
