Since our original journey we've created a non-profit organization who's mission is to reach under served youth and connect the children with nature, the environment and national parks. We are also reaching children in the classroom and tutoring and mentoring school aged youth.

Crater Lake National Park
This fall the kids from Plano, TX are headed to Eisenhower State Park for an overnight trip. We will spend time on Lake Texoma, hike with a ranger, kayak, and complete a service project.
January 2018 we began teaching a national park class to children at Davis Middle School. This was a wonderful beginning. The class focused on educating the kids about America's National Parks and the National Park Service. We also discussed ecology, conservation and our environment. Our group of kids went on multiple trips to the San Antonio Zoo and ended the semester with a trip to Padre Island National Seashore. 2019 School year we will continue to teach the national park class and take kids on outdoor adventures.
This fall we are headed back to Guadalupe River State Park. We are taking a group of kids from the San Antonio area.
We are taking a group of boys and girls to the park for the day. We will work in the park and complete a service project by doing trail work. We will take a hike with a ranger, have a picnic and explore the park.
This upcoming 2019 & 2020 school year we will add additional schools to our program and teach an introductory course to children to provide information about national parks and the national park service.
This includes ecology, environmental science, and conservation. At the end of each semester the class will culminate with a trip to a place like Padre Island National Seashore.
Leadership, team-building and mentoring are incorporated into the program.
