Partnership with The Trust for Public Land
Reusing Superfund Sites as Parks / Recreational Facilities
Technical Support for Parks, Gardens and Other Recreational, Ecological and Educational Reuses through The Trust for Public Land
The Trust for Public Land is a national nonprofit organization that conserves land for people to enjoy as parks, gardens, historic sites, rural lands, and other natural places. The Trust for Public Land can help communities:
- Identify and raise funds for conservation from federal, state, local, and philanthropic sources;
- Structure, negotiate, and complete land transactions that create parks, playgrounds, and protected natural areas;
- Support park and greenspace creation through innovative research, planning, and spatial analysis (GIS); and
- Help create parks and playgrounds on new or existing park sites, employing a participatory, community-based design process.
The Trust for Public Land is interested in exploring opportunities to collaborate with Superfund communities at any point in the cleanup process. If your community is interested in learning whether The Trust for Public Land can help you reach reuse goals, contact Ernest Cook (firstname.lastname@example.org), (617) 371-0502 to learn more about next steps.
