Group talking on beach.

As the Institute explores how parks can provide value to society, collaboration is a core component of any successful initiative. Yet many park agencies face significant barriers integrating collaboration and developing authentic partnerships with the communities they seek to serve.

The Institute draws on our own experience building multisector initiatives to help park agencies engage new partners and community groups. We work directly with organizations to design tools and develop the skills and strategies needed to build robust partnerships that reflect the needs of the community.
