The Arizona Trail Association works with schools throughout Arizona to help youth connect with the natural wonders in their own backyard. We are currently working with schools within the Arizona Trail gateway communities of Sierra Vista, Patagonia, Vail, Tucson, Globe-Miami, Superior, Pine, Flagstaff and Page.
Our goal for the Every Kid in a Park initiative is to help 240 4th graders have a positive and meaningful experience within the park, forest or canyon nearest their home. Parks being visited include Saguaro National Park and Grand Canyon National Park. Monuments being visited include Coronado National Memorial, Walnut Canyon National Monument and Sunset Crater-Wupatki National Monument. Forests and other federal lands include Coronado National Forest, Tonto National Forest, Coconino National Forest, and BLM areas throughout the state.
