FLOTUS made a special appearance on the square to meet a local boy scout troop. The purpose of her trip, according to a statement from The White House released Tuesday morning, is to encourage kids to spend more time outside and “learn more about the natural beauty of our country.”

Melania Trump will also spend time in Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.
