Outdoor Outreach is connecting youth from urban communities to California's state parks by coordinating outdoor recreation, environmental education and stewardship outings. By providing opportunities for urban and diverse youth to play, learn, serve and share, Outdoor Outreach helps increase awareness and ownership of state parks, and inspire tomorrow’s generation to respect and protect the places where they play.
“We are very grateful to the California State Parks Foundation for helping Outdoor Outreach connect over 200 diverse teens to their State Parks in a way that resonates with them" said Ben McCue, Executive Director. "These young people represent the future of California. Your support ensures that we have an inspired group of young park enthusiasts that are mobilized to protect State Parks for years to come."
