by | May 18, 2017

Seattle Parks and Recreation’s “Connecting Kids to Nature” program at Carkeek Park has won a $20,000 grant from the “Meet Me at the Park” campaign by the National Recreation and Park Association and The Walt Disney Company.

The $20,000 grant will help restore a vital environmental education connection trail between the salmon-bearing creek in Carkeek Park and the Viewlands Elementary School that sits adjacent to the park. The project will connect kids to nature by rebuilding and rerouting parts of the trail to provide safe, equitable access for the school and the surrounding community.
