our parks should be free & unchanged for the next generation
Our goal is to design and embroider a patch for each park in PA (121 in total!) Pennsylvania continues the great tradition of free admission and parking to all of its parks – and we'd like to keep it that way. Access to public park land is essential to community recreation. we believe with increased awareness and state-wide stewardship we can achieve that goal.
$1 of every patch sold is donated directly to the Pennsylvania parks & forest foundation.
In November 2016, we launched a kickstarter to fund this project. over 280 backers helped us raise $10k to make this project a reality. See the kickstarter mission video below:
