Forest Service Corner
As a part of the federal government’s Every Kid in a Park initiative, the U.S. Forest Service is excited to announce their partnership with the American Recreation Coalition to bring Discovery Agents to 60 National Forests across the country. Both the U.S Forest Service and the American Recreation Coalition (ARC) recognize the need to be leaders of innovation and technology in order to get kids in every state actively exploring the great outdoors.
Starting this Arbor Day and throughout the spring, Forest Service and Partner Missions will be launching across the country. Follow Agents of Discovery on social media for updates on who is launched and check out the map below and the Discover the Forest Page to find a live site near you!

"Agents of Discovery connects young people to their public lands. Conservation and stewardship remain as important as they were when the Forest Service was founded 110 years ago. We are helping to translate and deliver these values through games and technology, the language of kids today."
Director Conservation Education, U.S. Forest Service
"Agents of Discovery is an exciting new way to use technology to educate resort guests about our unique mountain environment. I think each site that is located at a ski resort on USFS permitted land should have one question that educates the Discovery Agent participant in the partnership of ski resorts and our national forests."

Resort Naturalist/Environmental Programs Manager, Grand Targhee Resort
"The launch of Agents of Discovery at Bridger-Teton National Forest shows how technology can help make the outdoors fun and exciting for a diverse population of American kids in the 21st century."
President of the American Recreation Coalition
"The Forest Service stepped out of the box and tried to have some fun with the Vogel Flats Agents of Discovery Site. Kids play a game for recreation and fun, but even though they might not realize it, they are also playing for knowledge and education."
