More than 5 in 6 U.S. adults support their local park and recreation agency making nature-based investments to support their community’s environment and reduce the impact of natural disasters. Top investments include:

  • Conserving and restoring coastal habitats, forests, wetlands and grasslands
  • Restoring and increasing natural spaces to prevent major flood events
  • Planting native plants for pollinators
  • Creating and expanding urban trees and forests, including green roofs and rain gardens

Each month, through a poll of 1,000 U.S. residents focused on park and recreation issues, NRPA Park Pulse helps tell the park and recreation story. Questions span from the serious to the more lighthearted. The survey was conducted by Wakefield Research.
