As we’re getting into the groove of blogging our summer adventures, we’ve realized quickly just how much Parks-in-Focusing is happening.
A quick recap:
- We wrapped up our first season of the community initiative in Tucson
- Two groups of Tucson preteens participated in classic trips to northern Arizona/Grand Canyon National Park
- Youth from East Menlo Park, East Palo Alto, and Redwood City, California are preparing for their trip to Yosemite next week (stay tuned for more)
- Youth from Missoula, MT are doing local hikes and taking part in a photo display at their local REI store before their trip to Glacier National Park later this month (stay tuned for more)
- Youth from Flint, MI are gearing up for the first in a series of day outings leading up to an overnight camping trip as part of a new pilot program in partnership with the University of Michigan – Flint and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Flint (stay tuned for more)
- Our first ever alumni trip happened in Michigan to Isle Royale National Park (post up next!)
