RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia's state parks system is partnering with the National Park Trust to get more young people enjoying the outdoors.

They're teaming up this weekend for a series of kid-friendly programs at every state park across Virginia to achieve that end. Activities include hay rides, the opening of a trail program at Hungry Mother and Grayson Highlands and guided hikes at other state parks.

Called "National Kids to Parks Day," the events are scheduled in Virginia on Saturday.
