■■  The

NRPA Board of Directors is solidly
behind NRPA's conservation initiatives.
In fact, a Board task force on conservation was formed by NRPA Board Chair
Bob Johnson at the 2011 Congress. The
Parks and Conservation column will report on how the NRPA Board is acting to
support broad-scale conservation practices and develop national conservation
policy goals.
■■  A new conservation discussion group has
been launched on NRPA Connect, NRPA's
the online network site. Join the discussion
to share your questions, comments, and
suggestions relating to conservation. New
information on grants, research studies,
and information sharing will be posted.
Join the discussion at http://nrpaconnect.
org/conservation.

is not too late to register for the Green
School, NRPA's new education initiative
related to conservation, greening, and
sustainability practices. This two-year
program at Oglebay Institute in Wheeling, West Virginia (February 26 to March
1, 2012) offers cutting-edge training
and education for park and recreation
professionals seeking to adopt energy
conservation, sustainability practices,
green purchasing, and adaptive management strategies. Visit www.nrpa.org/
greenschool.
■■  The Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES)
is in the final stages of a two-year pilot
demonstration of the SITES metrics for
sustainable landscapes. Significantly,
nearly one-quarter of the pilot projects
have been conducted in parks. For more
information on the Sustainable Sites Initiative pilot projects, visit http://www.

■■  Do you have a set of best practices or a
case study relating to conservation in your
agency or community? A number of case

NRPA's Conservation Task Force will appear in coming months-and your ideas
are welcome. To view the Conservation
Task Force's recommendations and case
studies, visit: www.nrpa.org/conservation.
To submit your own agency's BMPs for
