With National Park Week beginning on Saturday, April 16, the National Park Foundation is honoring the many ways that partnerships foster not only collaboration but also creativity, discovery, innovation, opportunity, preservation, and action in national parks and local communities. L.L.Bean, Nature Valley, Tupperware Brands, Subaru of America, and Union Pacific Railroad, among the National Park Foundation’s premier partners, are participating in National Park Week by sharing examples of how they help NPF achieve its goals of protecting wildlife and park lands, preserving history and culture, educating and engaging youth, and connecting people everywhere to the wonder of parks.
The National Park Foundation collaborates with industry leaders like Subaru of America to harness the power of technology and innovation to help parks thrive today and in the future, from reducing waste to increasing recycling efforts to accommodating electric vehicles and reducing air pollution in parks and gateway communities. Recognizing that park visitation is expected to rise in the coming years, with a concentration in the most well-known parks, the National Park Foundation collaborates with brands like L.L.Bean to help the National Park Service plan for future park needs, expand the ways people can experience parks, and highlight the rich opportunities that lesser-known parks have to offer.
The National Park Foundation supports programs and activities that help people build and strengthen life-long relationships with national parks, bringing people together for joy-filled and meaningful experiences outdoors, in collaboration with partners like Nature Valley. The National Park Foundation collaborates with companies like Tupperware to fund projects like composting and building water refill stations that help the National Park Service achieve its goal of diverting 50% of waste from landfills annually.
With the help of partners like Union Pacific Railroad, the National Park Foundation is making educational park experiences more accessible to more students around the country. The National Park Foundation also recognizes the ways in which it collaborates with partners and contributors to help conserve park history and culture, maintain native wildlife and vital ecosystems, and strengthen the ability of a growing community of over 450 park partners.
The National Park Foundation and its partners help people gain a broader understanding of history through a diverse range of perspectives and voices, see themselves reflected in parks, and understand how parks connect to their personal identities and lives through programs like the African American Experience Fund and Latino Heritage Fund.
The National Park Foundation supports initiatives such as exciting educational programs, professional development opportunities, historic site rehabilitation, and the preservation – both physically and digitally – of valuable artifacts and places as part of this work. Signature partner The Coca-Cola Company, as well as supporting partners Carhartt, GoGo squeeZ, History Channel, Niantic, Sun Outdoors, and Winnebago Industries, will join the National Park Foundation in commemorating National Park Week 2022.
