We Started A Blog!
Hi there, Park People! Welcome to our new blog. We hope you enjoy all the things we'll share here: announcements and insights into our activities, community highlights, tree care tips, coverage of tree equity and other important topics, answers to your burning questions, and more! With wildfires ranging, temperatures rising, and worrisome droughts, The Park People wants to provide our community with information and tools to address these issues. Now more than ever, it is so important to share knowledge and expertise about our urban forests, parks, and all the incredible benefits outdoor spaces bring to our city. Did you know that trees filter air pollution, act as a carbon sink, store water, provide shade to protect against extreme heat, and more? Or that parks are shown to improve both the physical and mental health of nearby residents? AND maintaining parks and trees provides stable, high-quality careers? Parks and trees truly are the answer to our most pressing issues. And we want to share them, along with tips and tricks on how to steward them, with you. We hope you'll join us!
If you have any blog post suggestions that will help us steward our urban ecosystem to create a healthier, more resilient future, please reach out at communications@TheParkPeople.org.
