FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — More than 15,000 foster and adoptive children and their families are getting free passes to Florida’s state parks.

First lady Ann Scott will visit Hugh Taylor Birch State Park in Fort Lauderdale on Monday to promote the partnership between the Department of Children and Families and the Department of Environmental Protection. The event will also include presentations by park staff and a guided nature trail walk.

Each year, thousands of children and their families are able to visit Florida’s 171 state parks and trails for free.
