The Nevada Division of State Parks encourages Nevadans of all ages to step outside on National Kids to Parks Day to celebrate the great outdoors and support First Lady Obama’s Let’s Move Outside! initiative.
“We want to inspire children to, at least occasionally, put down their phones and spend time outdoors,” said Eric Johnson, deputy administrator of the Nevada Division of State Parks.“Programs and interpretive events are scheduled year round at parks throughout the state to help reconnect our increasingly urban population with the real world.”
More information about programs, events and presentations is available at www.parks.nv.gov.
The Nevada Division of State Parks plans, develops and maintains a system of parks and recreation areas for the use and enjoyment of more than 3.3 million visitors a year. The division was established in 1963 by the Nevada Legislature to form a new state park agency within the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The division manages and maintains 23 parks, historic sites and recreation areas in Nevada.
