For the fourth year, NRPA is collaborating with The Walt Disney Company—including Disney|ABC Television Group and ESPN—on the Meet Me at the Park Earth Month campaign to provide communities with resources to improve local parks through projects that connect kids with nature, promote healthy living and provide access to sports.
There are 15 designated communities which include: Austin, TX, Brevard County, FL, Charlotte, NC, Chicago, IL, Durham, NC, Fresno, CA, Hartford, CT, Houston, TX, Los Angeles, CA, Miami, FL, New York, NY, Orlando, FL, Philadelphia, PA, San Francisco, CA, and Seattle, WA. The public can also nominate a city to receive a grant for a local park improvement project and the city with the most nominations will receive $20,000.
You can vote for one of three park projects in the 15 designated cities and/or nominate a city to receive $20,000 through the Meet Me at the Park Earth Month campaign throughout the month of April. Materials and resources provided in a marketing toolkit can be used to spread the word about the Earth Month campaign. The toolkit includes tips, suggestions and messaging to help you engage your community for support.
