Washington -- In support of the White House youth initiative Every Kid in a Park, the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America's national parks, announced it is raising funds to help connect fourth graders to America's public lands and waters. Individuals, foundations and corporations can visit www.national-parks.org/everykidinapark to contribute to the effort.
As part of the Foundation's Open OutDoors for Kids program, the Every Kid in a Park transportation grants seek to remove barriers to accessing our nation's public lands and waters with a special focus on underserved and urban communities. With cutbacks in school funding for field trips, this strategic funding will help provide comprehensive access to all federal sites, including national parks, forests, wildlife refuges and public lands and waters.
To participate in the Every Kid in a Park program, fourth graders nationwide can visit www.every-kidinapark.gov and download the pass.
