March for Parks
Conservation Promotion

Each year March for Parks is the nation’s largest walking event for parks. The National Parks & Conservation Association (NPCA) encourages businesses interested in preserving or restoring a park in their community to organize such a march. These annual events historically occur during the spring months of March, April and May, though summer months work too. March for Parks is an effective promotion for helping your station develop long-term sponsors.

The WATER Foundation Radio Network offers programming ideal for sponsorship of many conservation related community efforts. We will work directly with your station to develop a positive community-supported conservation initiative. After all, this is what we do best, while helping you INCREASE STATION REVENUES through creative sales support.

By airing TWF’s radio tips you can build a large inventory of conservation-focused title
sponsorship spots each year. Combining this with March for Parks live remotes and/or Bog Frog visits at sponsor locations during such special targeted events, printed materials and community partners will help create a highly saleable campaign.

 

To support each march, NPCA will provide the following, free of charge:
