March 27, 2017 - Grace Lee, National Park Trust
Partners are coming together to ensure kids across America can experience our national parks and public lands. The National Park Trust, The North Face, and Outdoors Alliance for Kids will join the National Park Service to co-host an Every Kid in a Park event at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore for 60 fourth graders from the Chicago Academy. This is the fourth event to be hosted in five different cities (NYC, D.C, San Francisco, Chicago, and Boston) all funded by The North Face Explore Fund.
The Every Kid in a Park program allows all fourth graders and their families free access to all federal lands for an entire year. This Every Kid in a Park launch event will feature a welcome program with the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Superintendent Paul Labovitz as well as speakers from National Park Trust.
