2018 September NRPA Update Heart Your Park 410

In an effort to connect corporate volunteers to community events in local parks across the country, NRPA launched its new ‘Heart Your Park’ Day of Service initiative. This new initiative offers corporate employees an opportunity to serve alongside co-workers and community members as volunteers in a local park, while experienced park and recreation staff facilitate events identified as high-priority needs. With the help of local park and recreation agencies, corporate and community volunteers will work together to restore a park or plant trees, support wildlife, clean up local water ways, address local resiliency efforts or provide fresh food to communities.

By engaging volunteers in conserving and restoring public parklands, NRPA aims to provide an improved quality of life in local communities throughout the United States. It’s a win-win for park agencies and corporations.
