The National Park Service is developing an online program called Virtual Field Trips that will make the Grand Canyon available to kids across the country with the simple click of a mouse. The Grand Canyon Association, the official fundraiser for Grand Canyon National Park, has entered this valuable project in the Pepsi Refresh Project in the hope of securing $50,000 to make this dream a reality.
