Kids in Parks

Programs in Tennessee State Parks

Kids in Parks encourages more opportunities for children to visit our TN State Parks and explore the outdoors. It provides support to eliminate barriers that children from underserved communities may face, such as transportation, supervision and/or supplies.

We work with public school systems across the state to make immersive and educational field trips happen by covering transportation costs.

Of the students from metropolitan areas who have been on these trips, 75% of them had never been on a hiking trail.

We are also supporting those parks programs that are tied to state academic requirements.

Please support our efforts to provide transportation, materials and staff support for these students.
