TMPF works to support and improve parks and open spaces in the greater Reno-Sparks metropolitan area. We do this primarily by providing in-park programming, fundraising, and opportunities for community engagement. TMPF is an independent, nonprofit organization that began operating in 2013. Our current programs focus on improving community health and wellness, science education, and developing appreciation for the natural and cultural history found in local parks.

The Student Stewards Camp Program is an in-park, STEAM-based (science, technology, engineering, art, math) educational camp program that connects students to the natural world and their local environment through exciting outdoor adventures. An extension of our Student Stewards Program, the Student Stewards Camp turns our local parks into learning laboratories by offering a standards-based option for school breaks.
