Planet Earth. Your Planet. Your Home. Whether we live in the city, North Hills, South Hills or anywhere in between, we are all tied together by our shared planet. That is why Earth Day is so important.
The Allegheny County Parks Foundation celebrates our planet every day by working to preserve your nine county parks. The Allegheny County Parks are vast – with 12,000 acres of rolling hills, wooded forests and beautiful meadows. The parks are trails, recreation, wildlife habitats and more.
Join us this Earth Day - Friday, April 22 - as we come together and celebrate what matters most—our precious earth. We are grateful that Jamini Vincent Davies, a lifelong lover of the parks, is going above and beyond her annual support by pledging to match all Earth Day donations, dollar for dollar, in hopes of inspiring you to support the Allegheny County Parks Foundation.
This means that your Earth Day donation will be doubled!
Support from donors like you helps make the work of the Allegheny County Parks Foundation possible. Money raised from this Earth Day campaign will go towards projects including:
· Stream water monitoring in Deer Lakes, Boyce and Settlers Cabin Parks
· Tree and wildflower plantings in North Park
· Invasive species removal in Harrison Hills Park
· Bird population monitoring in South Park
· Completion of an ecological assessment of White Oak and Round Hill Parks
· Tree and meadow plantings in Hartwood Acres Park
Your Allegheny County Parks are prized possessions of our planet. Like Jamini, we hope that you will donate to the Allegheny County Parks Foundation this Earth Day. Invest in your parks, invest in your planet.
