National Park Service Centennial Celebration Anahuak Youth The City Project: Equal Access to Parks!

Go to a park. Have fun. Be healthy. Learn about people and places. Get a job as a ranger. Save climate, creation, and people. Promote equal justice. They’re our parks!

To celebrate the National Park Service centennial, Anahuak Youth Sports Assocation and The City Project are partnering with National Park Service, National Parks Conservation Association, Community Nature Connection and California State Parks to take children and families on a fun, healthy, and educational hike in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The day-long trip will include transportation, a ranger/guide to lead the hike, park staff and nonprofit partners to provide education programming and materials, and healthy food and drinks for all participants. The Anahuak members are from Northeast Los Angeles, a community that is disproportionately Latino, immigrant, and low income.

Transit to trails is the optimal short term way to diversify access to and support for parks, recreation areas, and monuments.

The City Project and Anahuak are grateful for the generous support of the Rose Foundation. Thank you to our partners who make this work possible!
