President Trump and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke have reportedly decided to end the "Every Kid in a Park" program, which has helped hundreds of thousands of fourth graders and their families visit national parks and other public lands, many for the first time. Canceling this program will mean fewer people get a chance to experience Our Wild, at a time when many are already losing their connection with nature.
We need to reverse this trend—NOT make it even harder for young people to access public lands. Please ask your members of Congress to stand up to the administration and preserve this vital program.
