[ Find 1Thing with the National Park Foundation ]

Our sister Market Entercom Rochester chose the 1Thing Charity Organization Awareness of National Park Foundation for the month of August. We’re spreading the Love by sharing the Great word. There are many 1Things that can be done all across the country, and right here in ATX for our Parks! You can find a #1Thing here…  

NationalParkFoundationNational Park Foundation:

 “Our national parks are a uniquely American idea, truly supported by all of us. We are inspired by the beauty that surrounds us. We seek the wild and untamed land, the places where history was made, the sites that honor our heroes, and we stand behind what really matters – protecting these sacred places.”

About:

The National Park Foundation, the official charitable partner of the National Park Service, enriches America’s national parks and programs through the support of private citizens, park lovers, stewards of nature, history enthusiasts and wilderness adventurers

Chartered by Congress in 1967, the Foundation grew out of a legacy of park protection that began over a century ago when ordinary citizens took action to establish and protect our national parks.

Today, the National Park Foundation carries on the tradition of early park advocates, big thinkers, doers and dreamers. It works to keep trails clear, partners with collaborators such as the White House to get kids outdoors, and most importantly, raises and allocates critical funds to keep our national parks safe.

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike.”

John Muir, early advocate for the preservation of wilderness in the U.S.
