(This amendment provides $50,000 the first year from the general fund to the George Washington's Ferry Farm Fredericksburg Foundation. Funding would be used to expand ongoing archeological explorations, provide additional educational programs, and support the ongoing operations for Washington's Ferry Farm. This grant will also assist the organization with the development of outdoor classrooms focusing on each era in the history of the Ferry Farm and the relocation of its archaeology laboratory to the site's visitor center. The relocation of the archaeology laboratory is expected to enhance the public's understanding of the ongoing archaeological work at the site.)
