New York Schools Attend the North Face Explore Your Parks Event
On October 8th our Buddy Bison schools in New York, Brooklyn Jesuit Prep participated in The North Face Explore Your Parks event held at Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park. National Park Trust is a partner for these events, which are occurring all over the country.
Students and their parents had a wonderful time together, going on nature hikes and even spotting a pack of deer – which a few families had never seen before! The students also played disc golf, met with park naturalists, learned which items are necessary on a camping trip, and stopped by a fitness station run by Buddy Bison Ambassador Mark Jenkins.
You can use this tool provided by the North Face to locate a park near you!
