The Kids in Parks mission: to help disadvantaged students understand their roles in the natural world by studying, exploring, and stewarding parks and open spaces in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Kids in Parks has deepened the environmental knowledge and vocational skills of thousands of students throughout the Bay Area. Our program was recently called one of the "best programs" in San Francisco and highlighted as a model for other programs in the Bay Area and beyond.

Kids in Parks Named Among "Best of the Bay" by San Francisco Magazine

In the latest "Best of the Bay" issue from San Francisco Magazine, Kids in Parks was named one of the top children's charities in the Bay Area by child psychologist Sabrina "Dr. Suj" Gabel. Dr. Gabel commented:

“Their mission is to help underprivileged kids understand and connect with nature. San Francisco has so much natural beauty, so it’s really important that kids take a break from the fluorescent lights. Going on an overnight camping trip, visiting an organic farm, and learning about native Bay Area plant life are not only enriching, but can also teach really valuable skills.” Read the full article here.
