PERC Joins National Recreation and Park Association

The Propane Education & Research Council, a program operated and funded by the propane industry, is now a member of the NRPA.

In its ongoing effort to align with groups dedicated to sustainable practices and environmental stewardship, the Propane Education & Research Council has been granted membership to the National Recreation and Park Association.

"We are excited to be joining such an impressive group as the National Recreation and Park Association, which values the environment and the way it is treated at the local level," said Jeremy Wishart, deputy director of business development at PERC. "We look forward to collaborating with NRPA members who share our vision to create cleaner, more sustainable, and cost-conscious parks departments."

PERC is a check-off program operated and funded by the propane industry to promote the safe and efficient use of odorized propane gas. PERC is authorized to carry out programs, projects, and activities in key areas including safety, training, and research and development. Its efforts are targeted at industries benefitting most from having a clean, domestic, and affordable energy alternative to traditional fuels such as gasoline. Those industries include marketers of commercial landscaping, fleet vehicle management, residential and commercial building, agriculture, and material handling.

The NRPA is the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of public parks, recreation and conservation.
