Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced New York State is launching the "Connect Kids to Parks" program to enhance educational and recreational opportunities for schoolchildren and help promote parks and historic places in every corner of the state. As part of the effort, New York will partner with the National Park Service to extend free State Park day-use entry to all fourth-grade students and their families in 2016 as well as create a grant program to help transport schoolchildren to outdoor recreation and environmental education programs in State parks and historic sites.
