Whether they’re tucked away in neighborhoods, the center of cities and towns, or part of a nature reserve, parks are important to the wellbeing of our peoples and planets!

Happy Fourth of July!

“We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.” — William Faulkner

As we gather for this long weekend to celebrate the anniversary of our nation’s independence, let us use this time to reflect on what America means to ourselves and what it could mean for others. Need does not get a vacation so just as we want to gather and enjoy the company of our friends and family, it is important to remember those who may have a more complicated relationship to Independence Day or are otherwise requiring help this holiday.
