  • National Parks: America's Best Idea

THE NATIONAL PARKS | City Kids in National Parks | PBS

Duration: 13:40
Program: National Parks: America's Best Idea
Broadcast Date: Sep. 27, 2009

City Kids in National Parks explores National Park Service efforts to bring inner city kids into the parks, often for their first encounters with wilderness. The film tells the story through the lens of two programs — Biscayne National Park, a successful, well-established program working with fifth graders from greater Miami, and Death Valley National Park, a new program working with seventh grade students from Las Vegas — and is underpinned by the kids themselves.
