Jewell is scheduled to be in Carmel Thursday with Mayor James Brainard, a member of the bipartisan coalition Mayors for Parks, and other local officials in support of the fund. President Barack Obama has proposed fully and permanently funding the program.

The fund has paid for more than 42,000 state and local parks, playgrounds, urban wildlife refuges, greenways, trails and open spaces over the past 50 years.
