Lloyd, a middle school student from Baltimore, MD, was introduced to National Park Trust through the Where’s Buddy Bison Been? school program. Through his many trips to parks with NPT, Lloyd soon realized that having a safe place to play outdoors was not just important to him but also to his friends and community. He was inspired to advocate for the renovation of a local park near his home which was dedicated in 2012. "This park was a wreck. Now, it is a great place to play and be with friends.”
