DOI, USNPS mum on rumors that Zinke will cancel Every Kid in a Park program

A program that has sent millions of fourth graders and their families to national parks and other public lands since 2015, when the Every Kid In A Park program was launched by the Obama administration, could be ended by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, according to an organization that views the initiative as crucial to teaching youth the wonders of the outdoors and building tomorrow's public lands advocates and stewards.


"It’s an incredibly successful program that we support, of course," Jackie Ostfeld, founder and chair of the Outdoors Alliance for Kids, said Wednesday evening during a phone call. "There are rumors that the secretary does intend to end the program, and there may be confirmation of that any day now.”
