WE HAVE NEWS!! Parks n’ Pints began as an IG account sharing the brewery and national park adventures of Ryan and Julie with our friends. Gradually, we knew we wanted to be more. PnP is still a work in progress, but we have nailed down what it is that we want to BE. We have officially begun to work with partners to fundraise for our true passion: scientific research of how to best manage our public lands. We will be raising funds through a variety of ways to create small research grants for students doing research on public lands (more info to come on available grants and the application process). We have a very personal connection to this mission. As a couple of broke graduate students trying to make the most of our education and experiences, the smallest of grants made all the difference in the world to our future careers.The big news is…Our first official events are on the calendar! If you are in the Manhattan, KS area the 4th Tuesday of the month January thru April 2020, please join us at the Flint Hills Discovery Center for Hops n' Profs, a scientific lecture series which will also highlight local (and maybe not so local) craft brews! “Supporting our public lands one pint at a time” is truly what we aim to be, and we give a huge "Thank you!" to all of you for supporting our mission!
