Millennial influencers invited to apply for 2015 “Find Your Park Expedition” contest
GritoBlast! The National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, opened the call for applicants for its 2015 Find Your Park Expedition.
The expedition will engage people from all backgrounds and inspire them to discover all that a park can be and the variety of experiences that can be had in a park, directly supporting the Find Your Park/Encuentra Tu Parque movement launched earlier this year.
Millennial influencers are invited to apply online for the opportunity to participate in the national park adventure to Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. The application period goes through August 21, 2015.
“As we move into the second century of the National Park Service and look to connect all people to America’s treasured places, we’re thrilled that our expedition will once again give people the opportunity to experience our national parks, explore how they’re relevant to our lives as individuals and as a collective society, and share their adventures along the way with friends and family,” said Will Shafroth, president and CEO of the National Park Foundation. “The expedition is a great example of the important role that public-private partnerships play in inspiring more people to find their park.”
The 2015 expedition is an expanded take on the American Latino Expedition, a program of the American Latino Heritage Fund of the National Park Foundation. In its third year, the expedition will raise awareness about all that the National Park System has to offer, including careers with the National Park Service. In addition, the experience will redefine the word “park.” Beyond vast landscapes, the expedition will bring attention to historical, urban, and cultural parks, as well as National Park Service programs that protect, preserve and share America’s collective heritage in communities nationwide.
