Alabama Parks Partners is a new coalition of park supporters with a mission to support Alabama’s beautiful 22 State Parks — now and into the future.
The diverse, state-wide coalition is comprised of local businesses, organizations, nonprofits, local tourism and chambers of commerce, student groups, and others who have a passion for Alabama’s state parks. The group places a strong emphasis on the value of our state park system and the importance of offering continual support.
“Many other State Park systems have a foundation or coalition group that supports their parks system’s mission, says Phillip Darden, Chair of Alabama Parks Partners. “We think it’s time Alabama’s Parks get this same support.”
In the last few months, Alabama Parks Partners has been working to connect citizens with their elected officials, and to share other important related information via a newly launched website (www.alparkspartners.com) and on the coalition’s well followed Facebook page. The website offers key information about the Parks Budget & Economic Impact, AL State Park News, and Upcoming Events. Visitors to the site can also view the AL State Park 75th Anniversary Report.
