Mrs. Laura bush honored at National Park Foundation annual “Expedition America!” black-tie gala

September 24, 2008

 

 

 

On Wednesday, September 24, 2008, the spirit of America’s beautiful wild places will blossom at the Pier 60, Chelsea Piers, as the National Park Foundation honors Mrs. Laura Bush and Discovery Communications at the annual black-tie “Expedition America! gala and fundraiser. 

The National Park Foundation will present Mrs. Laura Bush with the illustrious Founder’s Award.  As the Foundation’s Honorary Chair, Mrs. Bush has been instrumental in spreading the ethics of environmental stewardship and preservation in America, and in connecting youth to our country’s natural and historic heritage.  In 2007, Mrs. Bush launched First Bloom with the National Park Foundation, in honor of the late Lady Bird Johnson, as the first nation-wide program designed to give children a chance to get in touch with their natural environment by reintroducing and cultivating native plants in urban areas.  First Bloom programs are now thriving in five pilot cities: Austin, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC.

The National Park Foundation will also present Discovery Communications with its Corporate Stewardship Award, for its steadfast partnership in working to protect and preserve some of America’s greatest places.  Through authentic and compelling storytelling, Discovery Communications has fueled America’s passion to learn more about our planet.  Since 1996, Discovery's contribution to the national parks has topped $30 million in value and has supported specific initiatives to restore the Washington Monument, raise funds for the Flight 93 Memorial Campaign, and bring about a new vision for the National Mall. Discovery has connected millions of new citizens to the parks through captivating programs on their channels and through park visitor films called ParkDocs featuring nearly eighty of our national parks. Today Discovery continues to demonstrate its leadership with the historic launch of Planet Green, the company's new initiative that deeply connects citizens to the environment and unites us all in celebrating, preserving and protecting the planet.

More than 600 guests representing business, philanthropy, education, preservation, environmental stewardship, recreation, youth, the arts, and national, state and local government, will join Mrs. Bush and the National Park Foundation to celebrate the spirit of conservation that protects and enriches America’s magnificent wild landscapes. Guests will enjoy cocktails, dinner and entertainment overlooking the breathtaking views of the Hudson River.  All proceeds benefit the National Park Foundation. 

Chartered by Congress in 1967, the National Park Foundation serves to strengthen the connection between the American people and their national parks by raising private funds, making strategic grants, creating innovative partnerships and increasing public awareness to continue a century-long tradition of private philanthropy ensuring funding to preserve and enhance the legacy of our national parks.
