Oklahoma kids view nature through photographic lens
A pilot program in Oklahoma for Parks in Focus put digital cameras into the hands of 24 Boys & Girls Club kids to help them learn about nature and photography.
“It will not only inspire our youth to enjoy nature, but will teach them valuable skills in photography,” said Jane Sutter, president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County, in a news release. “We are so appreciative of this wonderful new partnership.”
This was a pilot for the Oklahoma City extension of the program. Tucson, Ariz., is home to the flagship Parks in Focus program. Muter said the Udall Foundation's goal is to find local financial sponsorship to develop a program that would serve Oklahoma kids year-round.
