More than 3 in 4 U.S. adults agree it is extremely or very important for children and young adults to learn about the environment, as well as ways they can be good environmental stewards in their communities.

Younger generations, such as millennials and Gen Zers, are most likely to believe it is important for youth to become environmentally conscious. Park and recreation agencies are leading providers of programs and spaces where youth can learn about and connect with nature.

Each month, through a poll of 1,000 U.S. residents focused on park and recreation issues, NRPA Park Pulse helps tell the park and recreation story. Questions span from the serious to the more lighthearted. The survey was conducted by Wakefield Research.
