Events

The Trust for Public Land is proud to collaborate with communities – block by block, park by park, and city by city – to restore the public parks and outdoor spaces that gather us together. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event, whether in your neighborhood or online.

Upcoming national events

Thank you for joining us for a Park Bench Chat about the growing movement to preserve and lift up a more accurate, equitable public memory of America. We were in conversation with Keith Weaver, Trust for Public Land board member and executive vice president of Global Policy and External Affairs for Sony Pictures Entertainment; and Brent Leggs, executive director of the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund and author of Preserving African American Historic Places. They shared insights about places that tell the story of Black life in America, highlighting centuries of activism, achievement, creativity, and community. And we discussed how equity in historic preservation revitalizes communities, enriches our culture, and helps shape a more just and prosperous future for all.

January 26, 2021

Thank you for joining us for a virtual event on the future of public funding for parks and public lands. We learned how The Trust for Public Land donors helped us pass all 31 ballot measures we campaigned for in 2020, generating over $3 billion in new public funding for parks and conservation.  We analyzed recent policy wins made possible by our donors, with a focus on equity and climate, and discuss opportunities for expanded public support at the federal, state, and local levels in 2021 and 2022.

January 28, 2021

Pour your favorite drink and join Caroline O’Boyle, Chicago Program Director of The Trust for Public Land, for a Virtual Tavern Talk with Dr. Frances Kuo, Pastor Reshorna Fitzpatrick, and Dr. Sadiya Muqueeth who will share their research and observations about the connection of health and parks.

January 12, 2021

The Trust for Public Land released a new report on Jan 12th, 2021 entitled “The economic benefits of conserved lands, trails, and parks on the North Olympic Peninsula.” The report highlights the important role these resources play in the regional economy and will be used to help make the case for funding for conservation in the region with legislators, but also support community conversations around how best to intentionally plan for growth and conservation in this region. The project was the result of an essential partnership between The Trust for Public Land, Jefferson Land Trust, and North Olympic Land Trust. The effort was supported by public and philanthropic funding, including grants from the WA State Department of Commerce and Land Trust Alliance.
