Preserving and respecting the environment were values cherished by both Bishop and Parker Foundations evidenced by their years of charitable contributions to these causes. Contributions and sale of properties owned by the Bishops and Mary Parker resulted in establishment of public spaces and parks enjoyed by many to this day. The foundations recognize the role environment plays in healthy living for all species on earth and our dependence on the environment for food air, water and other needs.
