FACT SHEET: On Every Kid In a Park Day of Action, White House Announces Commitments to Getting Nearly Half a Million Kids Outside
The White House announced that more than two dozen foundations, corporations and nonprofit organizations (C&NN included!) will support Every Kid in a Park by funding trips to national parks and other public lands for nearly half a million 4th graders across the U.S. The announcement comes alongside many events happening across the country to celebrate National Park Week and the National Park Service Centennial.
At the launch event for his new book, “Vitamin N,” C&NN Co-Founder, author Richard Louv, addressed the pitfalls of living in a world that prioritizes virtual experiences over real ones. Louv issued a challenge to San Diego (and all city leaders) to take action to create the most nature-abundant and nature-accessible city in the world.
