Support Parks With Advocacy
We as park patrons can take pride in keeping parks clean of trash, in our weed pulling volunteer efforts, in designing and maintaining trails, in keeping parks open, in keeping parks safe, in legislation advocacy, in ensuring the overall excellence in the quality of our experience outdoors. But when protected areas managers are part of rigid organizational structures, they're less open to the positive changes we embrace. So where does innovation arise? Quality Parks created the Support Parks program to address this challenge.
Support Parks is citizenship engaged in public lands stewardship, especially improved access to open spaces and water. We practice observation with the five senses and an "open heart." Dropping your awareness from your head to your heart is a doorway to a greater appreciation of nature. The practice is outdoors and directly related to site specific park projects.
