Highlighted Site Sponsorship

NPLD 2021: Highlighted Site Sponsorship


With generous support from Toyota Motor North America, the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) is providing up to $1,000 in funding to support innovative events during this year’s National Public Lands Day celebration. A total of 25 NPLD events will be selected to receive funding.

For NPLD 2021, we have opted to retain last year’s theme of "More Ways to Connect to Nature." While virtual events were a necessity for NPLD Site managers over the past year, they have also proven to be an invaluable tool for connecting a wider, more diverse range of people to iconic parks, national forests, marine estuaries, and other public lands sites. This year, our goal is to highlight that diversity—in public lands, people, and the ways in which we value and care for these spaces—by supporting in-person, virtual, and hybrid NPLD events.

The application deadline has passed. Thanks to everyone who applied!
