Concrete to Canyons Youth Program
“For four days and three nights, students and teachers engaged in ranger-led hikes and activities throughout the park…” Etched, a local magazine, recounts the story of students participating in Concrete to Canyons, one of Zion National Park’s youth educational programs.
Read the Etched Magazine Article to see how partnerships between the National Park Service, non-profit organizations, and schools come together to give inner-city kids an opportunity to visit a national park – many for the first time.
