Local Sources- Share your love of the outdoors with a child during Kids to Parks (KTP) Day on Saturday, May 20. 

It’s a national day of outdoor play designed to connect kids and families with local, state, and national parks.

Gov. Eric Holcomb declared May 20 as Kids to Parks Day in Indiana and signed an official proclamation that acknowledges the important initiative to “encourage kids and empower families to get outdoors and visit America’s parks.”

The day is a chance for children to learn about park stewardship, outdoor recreation, and natural and cultural history. It also helps foster an appreciation for public lands in the next generation.

Special events are taking place at state parks throughout Indiana.

Here are some opportunities to engage children in KTP Day:

KTP Day is sponsored by the National Park Trust and supported by America’s State Parks and the National Association of State Park Directors.
