Friends of Heinz Refuge (FOHR) is engaged in a wide diversity of projects, programs, and services which serve to raise awareness of and support for John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Philadelphia, as well as the National Wildlife Refuge System and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.







The Friends of Heinz Refuge (FOHR) are excited to announce that we have created a new Field Trip Busing Grant Program through which area teachers and schools may request funding assistance to cover some or all of the busing costs associated with student field trips. Beginning with the commencement of the school year 2014-2015, we invite area teachers to download the the application. After the form has been completed, including all the required signatures, it can be submitted to us either by mail: PO Box 333, Folcroft, PA 19032-0333 (Attention Education Committee), or through our website email Ė Please note that part of the application process requires teachers to contact the refuge for additional instructions and to reserve their trip date. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, and must be submitted at least 6 weeks prior to the anticipated field trip date. Maximum funding will be $200.00 per school, per year. FOHRís education committee will meet monthly and will review all submitted applications then, with notice of grant approvals being sent immediately after approval.
