National Parks in Your Neighborhood
February 16, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CSTFree with Registration
The National Park Service protects and manages some of our nation’s most historic sites, important natural resources, and scenic recreation areas. But did you know the mission of the National Park Service extends far beyond the boundaries of national park sites? The Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance (RTCA) program is a community partnerships office that provides technical assistance to local partners that are planning outdoor recreation and natural resource conservation projects in neighborhoods just like yours.
On February 16th, join the Great Cities Institute in hearing from Michael Mencarini and Natalie Burgos to learn about how the RTCA Program is supporting partners in Chicago and bringing the ideals of the National Park Service to your community.
