The world has changed almost unimaginably since the start of the pandemic—but our mission hasn’t
The driving goal of our mission at The Trust for Public Land is healthy, livable communities, and the health of our volunteers, partners, staff, and the communities we serve is our top priority.
To do our part in limiting the transmission of COVID-19, our staff across the country are currently telecommuting, adhering to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as local authorities.
The world has changed almost unimaginably since the start of the pandemic—but our mission hasn’t. We’re still working hard every day to ensure everyone in America has a great place to get outside close to home, and that our shared public lands are protected from threats and accessible to all to explore.
As the nation grapples with the impacts of COVID-19, many places where communities gather for recreating and socializing are temporarily closed, and cultural experiences and events are cancelled. Having close-to-home green spaces where people can safely and responsibly get fresh air and exercise has never been more important.
A heartfelt thank you to friends and donors who are reaching out to share your concern and commitment to our team. In the days and weeks to come, we’ll be sharing stories of the power of communities to overcome adversity—and of how your steadfast support is empowering us to keep working toward a future where everyone has access to the outdoors, such as:
- Five takeaways on nature and health during the coronavirus
- Ten places where LWCF could make a difference right now
- Itching to head outside? Read this first
