Connecting youth from underserved communities to nature through photography

Parks in Focus provides opportunities for middle school youth from underserved communities to explore and learn about nature through photography, outdoor education, and creative expression.

Through partnerships with national parks, youth-serving and educational organizations, Parks in Focus encourages kids to get outdoors, explore their environment, be active, and express themselves through photography, writing, and art.

Thanks to generous support from our donors, Parks in Focus is free to participants and their families.

I learned more in Parks in Focus than I do in school.
