This summer as part of my Baltimore Environmental Explorers Summer camp (B.E.E.S) we visited a National Park almost everyday. Our goal was to not just visit the parks around the area but to also research the possibility of putting a National Park within Baltimore's own Inner Harbor! Campers studied and analyzed what they enjoyed about each National Park and how they could implement those features in downtown Baltimore. With our initial conversations with the Waterfront Partnership and City Hall we hope we have planted the seeds of a fantastic idea!
Our first National Park we visited was President's Park, which includes the White House!
