The time has come, Spring is here and that means it is time to get outdoors and celebrate Kids to Parks Day. Kids to Parks Day is a day where families across the country get an opportunity to go out to a National Park or public land and create memories that will last a lifetime! 

National Parks and public lands are so important. They give you the amazing opportunity to get outside, learn many new things, enjoy breathtaking scenery, and make memories that will last a lifetime. During these current times, it is especially important to get outside and take a deep breath in nature. And I think Kids to Parks Day is the best time to do it. So go, get outside, and enjoy the outdoors this Kids to Parks Day! 

When I visited Pecos National Historical Park (NM) for Kids to Parks Day a few years ago, I had the chance to see families visiting from all across the world. For many of those families, it was their first time visiting a National Park. I saw those families having a great time enjoying the many activities, exploring the park, learning many new things, and becoming Junior Rangers. Whenever I visit a National Park it is always so fun. It makes me remember the first time I visited a National Park. I remember it was like entering a whole different world. I loved the experience so much I went from visiting 1 National Park to visiting 250 National Park sites and all 50 states!
