It is focused on parks, as they are critical to preserving natural resources that have real economic benefits for communities.
The Foundation also provided a $175,000 grant to fund an innovative program with the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance (USA) that brings union members and American Water employees together to volunteer their time and skills on water-related conservation projects.
