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

May 4, 2022

Thank you for joining Trust for Public Land President and CEO Diane Regas on May 4, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. (PDT)/ noon (EDT) along with park, data, and climate experts for the 2022 release of our annual ParkScore index. We unveiled this year’s top rankings and took an in-depth look at ways parks are being powerfully leveraged to meet the climate crisis in cities nationwide. 

April 22, 2022

Our most recent virtual Park Bench Chat, “All in for Outdoors,” was a celebration of the benefits and joys we can all gain from spending time in nature—and we mean all.   Thanks for joining us this Earth Day, Friday, April 22, at noon (PDT) / 3:00 p.m. (EDT) for what was a a lively and entertaining conversation about good times in nature and what inclusiveness in outdoor spaces really means.  

March 3, 2022

We teamed up with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society for a virtual discussion on how public art engages community members, artists, and activists to connect communities and support green solutions to current challenges. 

CityHealth Greenspace Policy Package Webinar
February 1, 2022

Trust for Public Land and CityHealth, an initiative of deBeaumont Foundation and Kaiser Permanente, are partnering to advance urban greenspace policies from the lens of improving community health. This partnership began in January 2021 and brings together a diverse cadre of TPL staff. In December 2022, cities will be awarded bronze, silver, and gold medals for including 10MW and urban tree canopy goals in city laws, regulations, executive orders, ordinances, and comprehensive plans; increasing support for capital investments in parks; and ensuring that our most underserved communities are prioritized across 10MW and urban tree canopy policies. In January 2022, we launched our first webinar highlighting the health benefits of nature and case studies from cities. With more than 100 registrants and 65+ cities represented, the initial dissemination effort was a success. We are continuing this partnership into early 2023.

Consider this: sites that recognize the experience of Black Americans represent just two percent of those listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The Trust for Public Land recognizes this disparity and has for decades worked with communities to preserve such valuable places.  

This discussion will be moderated by Trust for Public Land Senior Vice President Malcolm Carson and will explore spaces The Trust for Public Land, alongside important partners, is helping to preserve.
