Parks Project and Studio Number One Release 'Power to the Parks' to Support America's National Parks

PP_SOCIAL-SQUARE.jpg

Studio Number One has teamed up with Parks Project, an official partner of the U.S National Parks, to create “Power to the Parks,” a visual campaign that encourages people to share their support for America’s National Parks. The campaign includes a free downloadable poster to print out and to share on social media.

During the recent government shutdown, National Parks faced severe understaffing, harmful trespassing, and reckless damage that will impact the parks for years to come. Studio Number One wanted to create a powerful visual message for nature lovers and park supporters, especially when they were feeling helpless during these challenging times.

This campaign is meant to defend our parks and raise awareness on how everyone can help. The “Power to the Parks” poster and social media image are available in SNO’s free downloads section or at www.parksproject.us.

Now is the time to join the movement and spread the word to help reignite the resilience and power of our parklands!
