In remembrance of Linda Brown, this week we're throwing it back to July 2017's visit to Brown v. Board, a site near and dear to our hearts since we are educators. The Supreme Court decision paved the way for nationwide desegregation of public schools. It also laid the groundwork for other legislation dealing with equal protection for students, including those with disabilities and those whose first language is not English. #findyourpark #parks101 #brownvboardofeducation #tbt

Back in 2010 we visited @grandcanyonnps and learned about the Civilian Conservation Corps and their contributions to the park... Including the low wall where there is only one non rectangular shaped rock. We often wonder what the story is... Happy Valentine's Day from Team Larsen! #FindYourPark #optoutside #parks101 #happyvalentinesday

#tbt to July 2015 and our boat ride from Curecanti NRA into Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP. Our route followed an old railroad line. It's a mile hike to the boat launch, so don't be late like we almost were! #FindYourPark #optoutside #parks101

Got out to Florissant Fossil Beds NM yesterday. It was fun to see the redwoods in a different state, especially after last summer's epic journey. The site is special because of the amount of fossils it preserves from the Eocene period. #findyourpark #optoutside

On the road again! We spent the morning exploring Nicodemus National Historic Site, the only remaining all black Reconstruction Era settlement west of the Mississippi River. Pictured here is the school house. #findyourpark #optoutside
