APRIL IS EARTH MONTH

April is here and our Environmental Pillar Workgroup is setting the stage for Environmental Education. As part of your Earth Month activities consider using this marketing campaign to help you communicate the importance local parks play to the environment. Earth Day is April 22 and National Arbor Day is April 27. Included are example social media posts for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, a logo to include on your flyers or posters and short tidbits to include in any marketing copy you produce. We hope you will utilize these tools! To access the Earth Month Materials click here. Also, use the #ItStartsInParks resources for your planning and marketing.

For more information on the Environmental pillar of the Strategic Plan, visit frpa.org/strategicplan/environment. Exploring the Resource Toolkit will help you with ideas for programming, contacts and possible funding opportunities for your environmental projects.
