How It Works:

3. In preparation for the park visit, partners should go to the ‘Every Kid in a Park’ website https://everykidinapark.gov to learn more about the initiative and download free park passes.
4. Once the fundraising goal is met, the partner is prompted to submit a few verification documents (i.e. w-9 and letter from participating school) to the Outdoor Foundation.
5. The Foundation will release funds within 30 days of receiving the information.
6. Every Kid in a Park becomes a reality!

Criteria:

Navigate Colorado state parks with new trail maps

Color-coded to make finding the right trail easier.image

If you’re a frequent user of trails in Colorado’s state parks, here’s great news: Colorado Parks and Wildlife has created 60 new trail maps that use color coding to show allowable uses on specific trails, indicated by mile marker.

The new maps include information such as elevation, trail length, trail surface and GPS grids, similar to USGS 24k topographic maps.

The free maps are available on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website.

Permit Outlaw? We just call them pirates, sentenced to jail

The morning report for the National Park Service on April 10, 2009 reported a man was given jail time and probation for threatening an NPS ranger. The man was originally in trouble for camping in National Parks without the necessary paperwork.

See Permit Outlaw” Sentenced For Threatening Ranger. I’ve never heard of the term Permit Outlaw, we just always called people who don’t have permits pirates. However this is an example of how a minor problem escalates when you lose your temper.
