War in the Pacific National Historical Park Receives Field Trip Grant from the National Park Foundation
Hagatna, Guam – War in the Pacific National Historical Park was selected to receive a 2017-2018 field trip grant from the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks.
This grant, part of the Foundation’s Open OutDoors for Kids program, supports Every Kid in a Park. The "Guam Fourth Graders Find Their Park!" project encourages youth to go outside in nature and get active in the park. Students and teachers visit the national park where they will join Park Rangers and partner Pacific Historic Parks educators on guided tours and various activities at Asan Beach and the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center.
“I can still remember the excitement of exploring my first national park as a kid and it made me want to discover more,” said National Park Foundation President Will Shafroth. “I’m thrilled that our National Park Foundation grants make it possible for hundreds of thousands of kids to experience the wonder of parks for the first time, sparking a lifelong love for national parks.”
