Let’s Partner Together!

by Dana Dierkes from The National Park Service

Have you been wondering how to partner with the National Park Service to celebrate the Centennial? This is an exciting opportunity to play an essential role in helping to bring the Find Your Park public awareness campaign to life across the country! To provide guidance about the campaign, the National Park Service and National Park Foundation have released the first of three Find Your Park toolkits for partners. The first toolkit is available here—on this website. (After registering to use NextCenturyforParks.org, click on the “Tools” button, top right.) These materials are provided so you can plan and prepare to launch the Find Your Park public engagement campaign together with the National Park Service in spring 2015. Please take the time to review and discuss the toolkit with your staff.

The Find Your Park toolkit contains information about research used to develop the campaign, new audiences we are trying to reach, a planning calendar, logos, style guides, recommendations on how to best use social and traditional media for the campaign, and display materials in development for parks, programs, and partners. All parks, programs, and partners are asked not to display the Find Your Park logo or messaging to the public until the launch of the campaign.

The Find Your Park campaign connects directly with the goal of the Centennial–to connect with and create the next generation of park visitors, supporters, and advocates. Reintroducing the National Park Service to the American public through the Find Your Park campaign is an important component of reaching that goal.

If you have specific questions about the toolkit or specific logo use, see the “Contacts” section near the back of the partner toolkit for a list of nationwide contacts. In addition, National Park Service staff have has received a toolkit, as well, so feel free to contact your designated National Park Service park or program representative for more information. In addition, after you review the toolkit, bring your questions and feedback to an upcoming webinar for National Park Service staff and partners:

  1. Hi,
    How can I help with this program. I work here at SFO Airport and I can assist to make contacts to specific departments to help reaching out to the public.
