National Legislative Forum on Parks and Recreation

Attend Legislative Forum March 19-21, 2013 and be the first to educate your elected leaders in the new Congress on the importance of parks and recreation to local communities and our country. Legislative Forum is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to be the voice for parks and recreation and advocate for our field.

Your presence is needed to help ensure that the changes in Washington have a positive rather than negative impact on your community.

NRPA urges you to unite with us at Legislative Forum to help:

  • Protect and enhance the federal investments in public parks
  • Use parks and recreation to increase activity and improve health
  • Conserve open space and making public lands accessible for public use
  • Connect kids to nature and the outdoors, reducing childhood obesity
  • Revitalize urban areas and creating livable communities
