Your parks need you now

Over the summer of 2023, Urban Trailblazers (UTB) and Linking Individuals to their Natural Communities (LINC) participants were moving and grooving at the Crissy Field Center and throughout the parks. Program leaders took youth hiking at Portola Redwoods and kayaking at Bothin Marsh in Marin. They tie-dyed shirts and bags in the Crissy Field Center courtyard and made pupusas in the Center’s new state-of-the-art Teaching Kitchen.
“It’s really fun. I met new people and I’m really good friends with them now in a short time,” said Trevor, one of the participants. “It’s just fun to do outdoor stuff like dodgeball. But I especially liked the camping because it was my first time.”
Our team at the Crissy Field Center is constantly brainstorming ways to make our programming more engaging and accessible to participants—this year, they led many of the activities in English and Spanish. Check out all the fun photos from this summer, and go to the Crissy Field Center page for additional info on each of these youth programs.
