The Seattle Every Kid in a Park Collaborative brings together nonprofits and land management agencies serving the Puget Sound region to develop strategies to ensure all fourth-grade students in the area (and their families) have opportunities to visit public lands and parks through the Every Kid in a Park initiative.
The Collaborative is working together to decrease barriers and increase engagement for Seattle youth with multiple outdoor engagement opportunities in addition to the 4th grader federal lands pass. We do this to connect youth with their community parks and federal lands to foster the next generation of environmental stewards.
