Connecting Kids to Public Lands
Programs for Children
Encompassing millions of acres, public lands are places where young people can connect with the natural world and explore their cultural heritage. People of all ages can enjoy recreational activities, experience nature, explore our nation's history, and discover the land's past on some of America's most amazing landscapes.
The BLM works with community and recreation partners to provide opportunities for families to spend time together outdoors. By engaging young people in learning and recreation on public lands, we can nurture the next generation of conservation stewards and leaders.
