KaBOOM! and NEEF: A happy union

Kid shovelingLike KaBOOM!, The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) aims to get kids and families outdoors, and we think that’s just swell. In fact, we’re joining forces to promote NEEF’s National Public Lands Day and our own Play Day program, both being held in September.

National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is the nation’s largest single outdoor volunteer event, this year drawing an estimated 170,000 volunteers at over 2,300 sites across the country on September 25. Since park improvement and volunteer activities are important components of many KaBOOM! Play Days, we will be working with NEEF to inspire families across the country to improve their community playspaces.

Is there a public park in your neighborhood that could use some TLC? Promote volunteerism, play, and the great outdoors by hosting a Play Day on September 25! It’s not too early to start planning.
