Thank you for your interest in the #MyParkOurFuture campaign – an initiative that highlights the importance of public parks, lands, and waters in our daily lives and why our future depends on them. We are encouraging people nationwide to post a #MyParkOurFuture photo – to share what their favorite park means to them and how parks shape our collective future. The campaign runs from Earth Day, April 22, 2022, through Kids to Parks Day, May 21, 2022. All participants will be entered to win one of 50 park experience prize packages featuring an America the Beautiful pass, Secrets of the National Parks Book, Park Trust Water bottle, and other prizes.
Ready to get started? Here is everything you need:
Starting on Earth Day, April 22, 2022, invite YOUR friends and community members to participate in the #MyParkOurFuture campaign on their social media channels. They can do this by posting a photo that features their favorite public park, land, or water and 3 words that capture its importance to our future. The key to success for this campaign is for each individual to tag at least 3 other people to post their own photo and share their own three-word #MyParkOurFuture story.
Post a photo of your favorite public park, land, or water to use in your social media post. This can be anything from a local park to a favorite river or even a favorite forest or mountain range.
Create a caption of 3 words that encapsulate what that park means to you and to the future of our world. Be sure to tag the location of the park in your post.
Identify 3 people in your life to challenge, and tag them in your post. Once you’ve tagged 3 friends, be sure to also tag the National Park Trust’s account to be entered to win our park experience prize packages. When you post your photo on social media, make sure that your privacy settings are adjusted so that your post will be visible to the National Park Trust!
After your 3 words, use the sentence below to ensure that the 3 people you tagged can join in on the fun and also enter the #MyParkOurFuture giveaway.
