#ThankfulThursday - The Places In-Between

by November 26, 2020

For our final #ThankfulThursday, we want to show our thanks to all other organizations that contribute to getting kids and families outdoors for their wellness and education. Outside of our public lands, there are many privately owned trails and institutions that people can visit to meet their recreational needs. Whether these trails exist on farms, schoolyards, along rivers and greenways, or even at museums, these are all great trails to visit while engaging with your local community. Privately-owned trails help ensure that everyone has an opportunity to explore nature, filling in gaps where outdoor access may be limited, and bringing together communities in the great outdoors.
