With the current covid crises as a part of the fabric of our society and our everyday lives we do not have any trips planned to get youth connected with the outdoors.
Crater Lake National Park
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.

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. The 2019 School year we continued to teach the national park class and to take kids on outdoor adventures.
My son, Justice Beverley is graduating from the University of Texas film school in May of 2021. I have asked him if he would like to take the journey to all the national parks once again. We are currently planning a trip together that will begin in the fall of 2021. We will create a documentary from this journey.
The winter of 2019 we headed back to Guadalupe River State Park. We took a group of kids from the San Antonio area.
The group of boys and girls spent the day at the park. We worked in the park and completed a service project by doing trail work. We helped to build and maintain a trail. We went on a hike with a ranger, had a picnic and explored the park.
