Guest: Julia Washburn, Education Lead of the Every Kid in a Park Initiative The average kid in America spends 7 hours a day looking at a screen. The White House has a new program hoping to get some kids to put down the tablet or phone and focus on the world around them. It’s called the Every Kid in a Park Initiative. Families with fourth graders are able to receive a free pass allowing them access to federal lands and waters through the end of the summer. If you’re making plans for spring break or summer vacation, this might get you thinking about how to get those kids off their screens and into nature!
