Kids in Parks in South Dakota?

by Tony Geiger, December 20th, 2011

Kids in Parks will be opening its next TRACK Trail in South Dakota - yes, South Dakota! Our Kids in Parks program will be taking the national stage at the 2011 National Association of State Park Directors conference, held September 6-9 at Custer State Park. In conjunction with our presentation about our TRACK Trails program to the state park directors from across the country, our 10th TRACK Trail will be unveiled.

"We are partnering with South Dakota State Parks to pilot our TRACK Trails program nationally”, said Jason Urroz – Director of Kids in Parks. “We are opening the Custer State Park TRACK Trail without stepping foot in the park prior to the grand opening, proving that our TRACK Trails program is easily transferable to other State Parks, National Parks and recreation areas across the country.”

South Dakota State Parks is so excited about partnering with the Foundation’s Kids in Parks program, that they have already obtained a grant to open several more TRACK Trails throughout the state.
