“For the last 50 years, the lakes, rivers, historic buildings and rich natural areas that make up Arizona’s state parks have been set aside and protected for the enjoyment of our local residents and visitors,” said Sara Putnam, Whole Foods Market marketing field associate. “As a company we are committed to caring for our local communities where our stores are located. By partnering with the Arizona State Parks Foundation we hope to help their important work preserving the natural beauty and history of our state parks for future generations.”

The Arizona State Parks Foundation is a nonprofit organization that serves as the foremost advocate for Arizona state parks in government forums, at the local community level and through the media. In addition to advocacy, the foundation focuses its efforts on developing relationships with affiliate friends groups as well as fundraising to preserve and strengthen Arizona’s 31 state parks, which consist of lakes, rivers, historic buildings and rich natural areas.
