Please consider proclaiming May 17th as Kids to Park Day in your community and showcase the great outdoor recreation activities available for your residents!
Get your own Buddy Bison
When you buy Buddy Bison, you help National Park Trust send an under-served student to a local, state or national park or wildlife area. All proceeds from sales of Buddy Bison and T-shirts benefit our Kids to Parks National Scholarship Fund. After you get your own Buddy Bison, send your photos of you and Buddy Bison as you explore national, state, and local parks; historic landmarks; wilderness areas; and wildlife refuges to email@example.com. Or send them to Buddy's facebook page. We may add you to Buddy's map.
You may be selected to be featured on our website and in our newsletter, Buddy Bison's Buzz along with stories, songs or drawings that you have written with Buddy Bison.
Buddy Bison says, "explore outdoors, the parks are yours!". Become part of this national movement and help us cultivate current and future park stewards!
