Community Toolbox

National Park Service

The National Park Service's Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance (RTCA) program helps communities work together to improve their special places. They've produced the Community Toolbox, a set of techniques for project development and community participation. All of the techniques are those that the program uses and can recommend. These were originally developed as print pieces and are now in online form.

The Tool Box site is both a resource for any organization collaborating on local projects as well as a model for creating an online kit of how-to materials. The 48 individual tools are presented in an easy-to-read and easy-to-use format. Both the web site and the hard copy offer suggestions and guidance for using the techniques in a variety of situations.
