The Green Gift program is an environmentally-friendly alternative to providing gifts for mParks conference attendees. Instead of handing out portfolios, tote bags or other small gifts which are soon forgotten after the conference, mParks strives to provide a lasting impact. By donating gift funds, mParks is then able to fund an environmentally-focused project submitted by a member agency. This year's Green Gift theme is Tapping Your Potential. Find a way to creatively improve an existing space or event to be more energy efficient and/or environmentally sustainable.
All Agency Members are encouraged to focus on "Tapping Your Potential" while developing their project proposals.
For the 2019 award, an allocation of up to $2,500 has been made for the “Green Gift”. The Conference Committee will choose the best proposal and the winner will be announced at the Closing Sessions 2019 mParks Conference & Trade Show. Applications for funding will be due January 15, 2019.
The Green Gift is generously sponsored by Polly Products and mParks.
