Help Museums

Posted on Jun 20, 2015

Are you a local friend in Chautauqua County or Western New York who wants to support the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History and similar museums? Please consider emailing our New York State Senator Cathy Young and New York State Assemblyman Andy Goodell asking for their support on the Museum Education Act. Why? Currently, New York museums are the only chartered entities that receive no direct funding from the Education Department that charters them. This bill would help museums continue and expand their curriculum-based educational programming and also help school districts and teachers by providing funding opportunities for transportation. It is the bill that brings back the school museum field trip!

Senator Young’s email: cyoung@senate.state.ny.us – ask her to support S.5001 in the Senate
Assemblyman Goodell’s email: goodella@assembly.state.ny.us – ask him to support A.8199 in the Assembly

Thank you!
