“Hi, I’m Robbie. I love nature and think kids are the best voice to stand up for parks.” So begins 9-year old Robbie Bond’s website home page, dedicated to galvanizing his fellow 4th graders (and all kids) to fight the good fight for public lands.
“When the Trump administration issued an executive order threatening to harm 27 of our
national monuments, I knew I couldn’t just tour our national parks. I needed to speak up,” says the young conservationist. “We must build an army of fourth graders and their families to stand up and speak for the parks. Our government needs to hear, from the youngest amongst us, that our national parks and monuments are not for sale.”
