Henrico fourth-graders to benefit from National Park Foundation grant


Nearly 2,500 fourth-graders from Henrico, Hanover and Richmond will have the opportunity to visit their local national parks and receive an annual pass to visit other federal lands and waters – all for free – thanks to a grant from the National Park Foundation.

Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site and Richmond National Battlefield Park were among the sites selected by the foundation, the National Park Service’s official charitable partner. The funds will be used to transport fourth-graders from the Richmond region on field trips to the parks, helping them connect with outdoor spaces and enjoy them as living classrooms. "Every Kid in a Park" programs at Richmond’s national parks emphasize the area’s rich Civil War and Civil Rights history, including a new program at Fort Harrison that explores soldiers’ experiences and the efforts of the National Park Service to protect the site. > Read more.
