Launched in 2011, Kids to Parks Day is a nationwide celebration of the great outdoors organized by National Park Trust and is designed to connect kids and families with their local, state, and national parks and public lands. By discovering and exploring our public lands, kids across the country can learn about park stewardship, outdoor recreation, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), and the history of our country. In addition, by teaching our kids to appreciate and enjoy our public lands, we can foster future outdoor enthusiasts and create the next generation of park stewards and caretakers of these important places. Because kids need parks – and parks need kids!
Join us as Red Rock State Park celebrates Kids to Parks Day with a Nature Expedition. From 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., we will have special activities for kids, guided hikes and two presentations from NAU’s Traveling Arthropod Show. So you can see and learn all about the creepy, crawly creatures that live in Arizona. Special event pricing of $2.00 for kids ages 7-13 and kids 6 and under are free.
