A total of 37 national parks have been selected to receive a 2015 Active Trails grant from the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America's national parks. Now in its seventh year, the Active Trails program supports healthy living by getting people out and active in national parks through projects that help restore, protect, and/or create land and water trails across the country. The Coca-Cola Company is a longstanding supporter of the National Park Foundation.

Since 2008, the National Park Foundation has granted more than $2.8 million through its Active Trails program. As of 2014, Active Trails has engaged more than 11,000 volunteers and 579 project partners who combined have contributed more than 60,000 hours to help promote, refurbish or build national park trails.

"Through our Active Trails program, people are discovering that parks are great places to have fun, give back, and exercise," said Susan Newton, senior vice president of grants &programs at the National Park Foundation. "As we move into the second century of the National Park Service and look to connect all people to America's treasured places through our Find Your Park movement, programs like Active Trails are engaging people across the country and helping them find their own unique connections to parks."

"Trails are literal pathways to better health," said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. "These National Park Foundation grants will help protect, restore, and create trails in national parks, both urban and rural, that are essential to our physical and mental health as places of recreation, inspiration, and reflection."
