About National Park Trust
National Park Trust is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving parks today and creating park stewards for tomorrow. As people spend more time indoors, and as successive generations grow up with less of a connection to nature, NPT wants to build a greater awareness and appreciation for the importance of our country’s public lands and parks. NPT’s Buddy Bison® School Program and Kids to Parks Day National School Contest were selected in 2015 as a National Park Service Centennial Project. Learn more at: www.parktrust.org
About Full Van Fun
We started Full Van Fun in September 2015 with a simple idea: share stories, interviews, reviews and more from our life as a mom, dad, and seven kids between baby and 14 (3 boys & 4 girls), focused on travel, farm to family food, and family friendly music that the “full van” (i.e. parents & kids) can enjoy. For example, we love to travel with our kids. Over the last 3 years alone, we’ve covered more than 20,000 miles in roadtrips as far north as Saguenay, Quebec, as far south as Key West, Florida, as far east as Sydney, Nova Scotia, as far west as Eureka, California and everywhere in between! We also have a special love for National Park and Parks Canada sites (e.g. National Parks, National Monuments, National Historic Sites, etc) and their programs for children (e.g. Junior Ranger and Parks Xplorer). At Full Van Fun we share stories and tips from our travels including places to stay, things to see, fun activities for kids, etc. Learn more at: fullvanfun.com
