Kids to Parks Day is a national day of outdoor play designed to connect kids and families with their local, state, and national parks. By discovering our public lands, kids across the country are learning about park stewardship, outdoor recreation, STEM, and history. Through teaching the next generation to appreciate our public lands, we are helping to foster future park enthusiasts and create the next generation of park stewards.
