Discovering National Parks and Camping Too!

Thanks to our new partnership with the Diana Davis Spencer Foundation and their outstanding gift of $202,000, we welcomed 10 Title 1 schools in Washington, D.C. into this school year’s Buddy Bison School Program. Plus 6 schools will experience 3 days and 2 nights of camping at Prince William Forest, Harper’s Ferry or the Appalachian Trail!

“We are very pleased to be working with National Park Trust to provide robust national park experiences for elementary and middle school students in Washington, D.C.,” stated Diana Davis Spencer, president of the Diana Davis Spencer Foundation. “Through NPT’s Buddy Bison School Program, we are providing local children with memorable park experiences and helping to foster future conservation leaders that will be inspired to preserve and protect our national parks for generations to come.”

“We are delighted to be able to impact a large number of schools in one community and provide multiple park experiences for their students through this extraordinary gift from the Diana Davis Spencer Foundation,” said Grace Lee, NPT executive director.
