Howland Hill Outdoor School (HHOS) has released a new Distance Learning Video Series for Redwood National and State Parks. HHOS developed these programs to carry on the Every Kid in a Park initiative that was implemented for the 2016 Centennial Year of the National Park Service. These curriculum-based education programs give students who can't visit Redwood in person, the opportunity to learn about this amazing resource from anywhere in the world.
