The National Recreation and Park Association has announced the second year of its Heart Your Park Day of Service Initiative. The association is partnering with CITGO Petroleum Corporation, City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department and the Forest Preserves of Cook County in Cook County, Illinois.
"The NRPA looks forward to working with CITGO, the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department and the Forest Preserves of Cook County to offer corporate and community volunteers an opportunity to serve in local parks," said Karl Schrass, NRPA director of conservation.
