NRPA Advocacy Insider
$12 Billion Approved for Parks and Conservation

Regardless of how you view the outcome of the national election, the American public is united in its support for our parks and open spaces. Across the country, voters overwhelmingly supported dozens of ballot measures which will provide over $12 BILLION in public funding for conservation, parks, wilderness and green infrastructure.
This should come as no surprise as we already know just how strongly Americans feel about their local parks. NRPA's Americans Engagement with Parks Survey highlights that fact.

What Happens Next with President-elect Trump and a New Congress?

The changes happening in D.C. are seismic and unprecedented, but the NRPA Public Policy Team is keeping you up-to-date with what they will mean for parks and recreation. 

In addition to original commentary on how the election results affect parks and recreation below, join us Friday, November 18 at 2:00 p.m. ET for a webinar that will cover where things stand in the transition to a new presidential administration and how it will impact important public policy priorities. This webinar is free for NRPA members.
