The National Park Service and one of its major concessionaires, Xanterra Parks & Resorts, are worried about recent studies that show declining attendance at the country's parks. Of special concern: fewer children visiting.
In a press release sent out today, Xanterra suggests something kids can do once you get them inside a park: Take a hike. Other suggestions, all worthy - ride a horse or a train, watch for wildlife, and play golf (?).
