WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) announced today that the National Park Foundation will be the featured nonprofit partner of the 2015 NAB Show, April 11-16 in Las Vegas. NAB Show is the world's largest media and entertainment event with more than 98,000 annual attendees.
The National Park Foundation (NPF) is the official charity of America's national parks and nonprofit partner to the National Park Service. NPF raises private funds to help protect more than 84 million acres of national parks and inspire Americans to connect with our natural landscapes, vibrant culture and rich history.
NPF will highlight its "Find Your Park" campaign, which recognizes the 100th anniversary of the creation of the National Park Service, through its presence at the 2015 NAB Show. At the NPF booth, L5 in the North Hall lobby, attendees can share stories about their favorite national parks, watch the newly launched public service announcement (PSA) and view stunning footage from national parks around the country. Also, National Park Service rangers will discuss live events taking place across the United States and the impact these parks have on local communities.
Additionally, NPF will distribute PSAs to broadcasters at NAB Show, both at the NPF booth and the NAB Public Service booth, NU3 in the North Hall upper lobby. The broadcast-quality PSAs are available now on NAB Spot Center, www.NABSpotCenter.org, for stations to download and air.
"From Oregon's Crater Lake to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., national parks and monuments are an important part of local communities across the country," said NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith. "I encourage our members, exhibitors and attendees to visit the National Park Foundation booth at NAB Show, and join the National Park Service centennial celebration."
"America's national parks were first established through private philanthropy and today, more than ever, that tradition of support makes the critical difference in the protection and preservation of these incredible places and the engaging programs they offer," said Dan Wenk, interim president of the National Park Foundation. "As we kick off the celebration of the centennial of the National Park Service and the 'Find Your Park' public engagement and education campaign, the opportunity provided by the National Association of Broadcasters will allow us to reach the next generation of visitors, supporters, and advocates, ensuring that the national park legacy will continue into the next 100 years."
