Movin' in the Monuments
The highly successful program, Movin’ in the Monuments, promotes healthy lifestyles for youth and their families in the Flagstaff area. Using the backdrop of all three Flagstaff Area National Monuments, this program creates connections and opportunities for outdoor recreation that contribute to families’ and youths’ physical, mental and social well-being. Movin’ in the Monuments has greatly increased outreach to areas such as the Sunnyside and Southside communities. This program has reached over 450 people, including 325 children,
with 20 different events. Collaborators with the national monuments are the Friends of the Flagstaff National Monuments, the Flagstaff Unified School District, the National Park Foundation, and the Coconino National Forest. The initial funding source provided by the National Park Foundation is no longer available. To continue this program will require a new, non-federal funding source to be used primarily for transportation and to provide healthy snacks for participants.
