As leaders in connecting communities to nature, it is vital that park and recreation professionals are inclusive and welcoming in their work. Advocates, stewards and volunteers are key to the success of ecologically balanced park projects and spaces, but these stakeholders must reflect the communities these spaces serve.

NRPA’s Engaging Diverse Groups in Building Community Resiliency Through Stewardship will help professionals communicate about nature and natural resources thoughtfully with their community while building mutually beneficial diverse partnerships that focus on nature with equity at the forefront of their approach.
