$900 to support virtual learning during COVID

The Yolo Basin Foundation helps people West Sacramento residents learn about and appreciate ecological diversity of the wildlife area and encourage a lifetime of healthy outdoor activities. During COVID, YBF transitioned the Discover the Flyway school program and Bat Walk and Talk to live, online sessions. With a grant from the West Sacramento Foundation, YBF bought tablets with cellular communication and an external microphone to deliver interactive learning live from the wildlife area, which also helped teachers keep their students engaged through virtual fieldtrips.
