Innovation and Inspiration Fund

Help the Parks Foundation deliver our courses and outdoor experiences to the members of our community who need it most. School closures do not mean our children can’t learn, and social distancing doesn’t mean we can’t explore our parks—it just means we have to do it a little differently!


Make a gift today to support online learning and outdoor exploration through these new initiatives.

Virtual Guided-Hikes

Our parks, trails, and open spaces are still open! We're creating videos and park field guides so you can still explore. While we aren't able to host our Discover Your Park walks or Truckee Meadows Trails Challenge hikes at this time, these tools will help community members become successful naturalists.
