Marci Mowery, PA Parks & Forests Foundation, Named Chair Of New National Group To Support The Nation's State Parks

On November 30, the new National Association of State Park Foundations announced Marci Mowery, President of the
PA Parks and Forests Foundation, will serve as the group's first chair.

The national association is being launched to support and advocate for the army of volunteers and Friends groups that help care for the nation's state parks and forests.

"Every state in the nation has many wonderful state parks and forests and they all rely heavily on volunteers and nonprofit Friends groups," said Association Chair Marci Mowery.

Adding, "These volunteers and groups support the work of park managers and staff, raise funds for projects in the parks, help run educational and environmental programs, and much more. Without them, many parks would not be able to operate."

The National Association is a nonprofit organization designed to connect, build, elevate and empower member statewide nonprofit partners of America's state parks and advocate for them.

Full membership is open to all nonprofit groups directly supporting their state parks and affiliate membership is open to individuals, other organizations, and corporate entities that want to support our mission and goals, said Mowery.

The officers of the National Association are Marci Mowery, Chair, President of the PA Parks and Forest Foundation; Don Philpott, Vice-Chair, President-Elect of the Florida State Parks Foundation; and David Pearson, Secretary, and Treasurer, executive director of the North Carolina Friends of State Parks.
