Following a visit last year by Northeast Outreach and Engagement Manager Timothy Leonard of the National Parks Conservation Association‘s Northeast Regional Office in New York City, the Association recently donated $5,000 to the Sowams Heritage Area Project. The funds will be used to complete the feasibility study that is currently underway that will be submitted to the National Park Service to determine whether it can qualify as a National Heritage Area.
With a network of 27 programmatic locations in 11 regions across the country, the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) is uniquely positioned to protect our nation’s most cherished places. By living and working in and around the parks and communities they serve, NPCA’s regional and field staff forge lasting and effective partnerships with advocates, organizations and governments to bridge local advocacy and national policy.
With more than 1.6 million members and supporters beside us, the Association is the voice of America’s national parks, working to protect and preserve our nation’s most iconic and inspirational places for present and future generations. We celebrate the parks — and work tirelessly to defend them — whether on the ground, in the courtroom or on Capitol Hill.
