BLEF believes that field trips play an important role in a school curriculum. All children, regardless of economic or social status should be able to benefit from school-sponsored field trips. By sponsoring field trips through administrative support, logistics, advocacy and hands-on volunteer efforts, BLEF hopes to enhance the educational experiences of children of the Oakhurst/Yosemite area.
