Idaho Parks and Recreation Department Director David Langhorst is asking for approval to raise money for state parks through corporate sponsorships.
Langhorst said the agreements with companies could help pay for educational programs and park facilities.
“And there are many companies that really like parks and they see some value in partnering with us for their own outreach and marketing purposes,” he said. “We know of other examples. In higher ed, where you see Nike swooshes on uniforms, company names on buildings.”
