Lloyd, a middle school student from Baltimore, MD, was introduced to National Park Trust through the Where’s Buddy Bison Been? school program. Through his many trips to parks with NPT, Lloyd soon realized that having a safe place to play outdoors was not just important to him but also to his friends and community. He was inspired to advocate for the renovation of a local park near his home which was dedicated in 2012. "This park was a wreck. Now, it is a great place to play and be with friends.”

We’ve set a goal to raise $2,013 – will you help us? Your donation will help students like Lloyd, participate in National Park Trust’s environmental education program, Where’s Buddy Bison Been?.
We’ll let you know if we met our goal next week. Or follow us on Facebook or Twitter for up-to-the-minute goal reporting.
Thank you. Everything we are able to do, is because of the generosity of people like you.
