#ThankfulThursday - America's Public Lands

This #ThankfulThursday, we want to recognize our partners in the National Park Service and other partners within the U.S. Department of Interior and U.S. Department of Agriculture. America’s public lands are the crown jewels of our country. Made up of renowned national parks, forests, wildlife refuges, conservation areas, scenic rivers, marine monuments, historic sites, battlefields, and wildernesses, public lands cover hundreds of millions of acres across the nation.

National TRACK Trails Day 2020

Not only do people benefit from being outdoors, but our public lands also benefit when people use them! Stronger connections between children and parks cultivate stewards who will understand the value of our public lands. As those connections have grown (and still grow!) on our network of TRACK Trails, we’re excited to celebrate our 2nd annual National TRACK Trails Day! A day to honor our partners and Trail TRACKers who help make this program possible!

Can you believe it? Kids in Parks is turning 10! And we’re so excited to celebrate! It has been our passion this past decade to create opportunities to encourage children and parents to improve wellness by turning to nature; by venturing outdoors and “unplugging” from the distractions of modern life. Because not only do people benefit from being outdoors, but our public lands benefit when people use them!
