Conservation is to the careful preservation and protection of something; especially : planned management of a natural resource to prevent exploitation, destruction, or neglect.  We are protecting our parks!  

"Core to the mission of public parks and recreation is the preservation of natural resources and the promotion of good conservation and stewardship practices. In today's world, where conservation and environmental stewardship is on everyone's minds, public parks and lands are viewed as essential to protect open space and preserve nature - our land, water, trees, open space, wildlife.  But even more so, we value what conservation of these resources bring to us such as clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, protection from and prevention of extreme weather events and more.

Public parks and recreation everywhere are engaging in good environmental stewardship practices that ensure communities and future generations can reap the benefits of a protected and enhanced recreational environment. Now more than ever, we must demonstrate and show how parks are essential to the quality of the environment and lives of all. "
