Los Angeles Kids Making the Outdoors Home!
As summer ramps up some urban kids from Los Angeles have already had a taste of the outdoors thanks to support from Los Angeles Wilderness Training. These girls, along with about 15 friends from A Place Called Home, were out at Chilao Campground enjoying some springtime outdoors!
The National Park Service wants Everybody Outdoors!
Through their newly launched Find Your Park campaign and as part of the roll-out of their centennial celebrations in 2016, The National Park Service is aiming to get 4 million fourth graders outdoors. But we're also thrilled that they're reminding us -- through the #findyourpark videos -- that parks aren't just far away iconic spots like Yosemite and Yellowstone but rather places near and far where you find "pride and gratitude and fun!" While still a journey in process, we think this is a terrific step forward to making the parks more welcoming to all.
The National Park Service says #FindYourPark!! And they don't just mean National Park, they mean ANY park!
More outdoor leadership trainings and a big thanks to our newest sponsors!
Both Tara and Jill, Outdoors Empowered Network staffers, instructed a recent wilderness course in Tahoe National Forest. Check out more pics from this wild-weather-Wilderness Leadership Training on BAWT's facebook Page
We're thrilled to announce that we've received incredibly generous support from two terrific corporate sponsors this spring. Keen Footwear and Eureka! Both donated a LOT of gear that we've passed on to our member organizations around the country so they can camp and hike and have fun outdoors this summer! Thanks Keen and Eureka! We couldn't do it without you!
