Through lead funding from REI, and additional funding provided by Outdoor Foundation, Outdoor Industry Association and The Conservation Fund, every 4th grader in Washington, D.C. will have one thing in common this year: a powerful park experience. Via Parks4Kids, an initiative of the Outdoor Foundation and the Outdoor Industry Association, approximately 3,300 4th graders in the District will have the opportunity to visit a nearby National Park.

Organized and managed by the National Park Trust, the park trips will include visits to Rock Creek Park, C&O Canal, the National Mall and Prince William Forest Park.  The partnership effort will support the broader ‘Every Kid in a Park’ initiative, which was announced by the White House this year and has the goal of providing an opportunity for every 4th grade student in the country to visit a National Park or other federally managed lands and waters nationwide.
