Bronco Wild Fund Grant

Devil's Den State Park

Bronco Wild Fund (BWF) is continuing support for America’s State Parks by promoting our shared goal of
helping increase access to the outdoors. In 2024, BWF is providing funds for new introductory access
programs in state parks. The overall goal is to get more people outdoors, build their skills to connect
outside in the future and tackle barriers to engaging in new outdoor activities.

Applications/proposals will be reviewed by a panel of BWF stakeholders. Recipients will be selected based on the most
compelling proposal/s in each region for between $5,000-$15,000 per award. Applications must be
submitted through the online form below.

Example introductory access programs:

- Instruction/workshops for beginning a new outdoor recreation activity (ex: new Learn2
programs, 101 or other introductory/basics offerings)
- First time offerings – programs that target new visitors to your state park
- Introduce families to outdoor recreation activities for beginners (ex: experiential camping
workshop – overnight series of programs, fair-style 1-day event at-your-own-pace)

Target new audience or mitigate a barrier to participation by providing specialized/expensive equipment, knowledgeable instruction or youth programming or childcare during adult/family programs. Funds that will support continuation of new programming are preferred compared to one-time programs.

Apply for funds to overcome or minimize barriers to
participation. Help people try new activities to engage in outdoor
recreation and introduce more people to the great outdoors!

The deadline to apply is April 26, 2024.
