Stewart L. Udall Parks in Focus® Program

What is Parks in Focus® – Our Impact

For the past 25 years, Parks in Focus® has been putting cameras in the hands of youth and introducing them to the wonders of nature and our Nation’s public lands. In that time, Parks in Focus® has reached nearly 7,000 youth through more than 11,000 hours of on-the-ground programming.
