“This program primarily is an effort to try to expose young people to the great outdoors.”
“I’m trying to get people who have never gone out hiking out there and have those moments where they connect with nature, where they fall in love with it, where they’re like “okay, I want to get more people to do this as well.”
“Without this active trails grant supported by Coca-Cola and National Park Foundation, we wouldn’t be doing this trail.”
“We’re out here taking people on free kayak rides. It’s a great day for that. It’s a great place to do it. It takes money to do this kind of stuff, and the more resources we have, the more we can do.”
“It’s just a great place to kind of bring the family and enjoy nature.”
“Kids coming out here, yeah, it’s something they’re gonna remember their whole life.”
“It’s important that we preserve National Parks into the future because the preservation of National Parks is also the preservation of society.”
“We need partners to take a huge step forward and fund not only projects in the parks, but fund recycling and other important efforts in the National Parks.”
“I think something in humanity is intrinsically connected with nature and it always will be and it’s important that we don’t lose that; so it’s very encouraging that Coca-Cola is setting the standard for creating those lifelong experiences.”
