Buddy Bison Program
Wouldn’t it be awesome if there was a program to connect parks and kids? Wait, there is! It’s called the Buddy Bison School Program! Kids need parks and those parks need kids. This program was created to help promote outdoor recreation, but also teach environmental education.
If you know anything about the Buddy Bison Program, you know that it’s important to preserve parks. If we don’t preserve the parks, we have nothing to offer our children and grandchildren down the road. National Park Trust has worked hard over the years to protect the parks and everything within them.
The center of the Buddy Bison Program is all about the Youth! The main program is the Buddy Bison School Program, but there are other youth programs (National Kids to Park Day). With these programs, kids get to be involved in the National Parks!

The Buddy Bison Program actually has a little mascot and he’s adorable. You can get your own Buddy Bison Mascot and share your adventures! You can learn about getting your own Buddy Bison right here.
There you have it, an amazing program to help teach our youth something important. You can even get involved by donating or volunteering your time.
I love the idea of the Buddy Bison Program because someone is doing something to connect kids and nature again. Once we teach kids how to treat nature, they can pass it onto their kids. It’s a cycle that starts now! The Buddy Bison Program has a lot going for it and I can’t wait to watch it continue to unfold over the months and years.
