National Park Trust invites YOU and students across the country to participate in the 8th annual Kids to Parks Day, a nationwide grassroots movement celebrating America’s parks and public lands. Kids to Parks Day takes place every year on the third Saturday of May. In 2018, it will be Saturday, May 19th.
Two Buddy Bison students provided testimonials at a congressional briefing, organized by Outdoors Alliance for Kids, about the importance of the Every Kid in a Park program. During the briefing it was announced that the bi-partisan Every Kid Outdoors Act would be introduced to the House and Senate to officially establish a federal program to give free access passes to fourth graders and their families to see America’s protected natural, historical, and cultural sites.
Check out our 2-minute video as 80 4th graders from Donald McKay K-8 School in East Boston set sail last week with Buddy Bison and explored Spectacle Island, a part of the Boston Harbor Island s National Recreation Area.
