Help us design Dane County Parks t-shirts!

T-shirt design

Dane County Parks are vital to our community and continue to grow and improve every year. Currently, the parks include over 15,000 acres of land including 25 recreation parks, 29 natural resource areas, 15 wildlife areas, 3 cultural/ historical sites, 2 forests, 5 campgrounds and the Lussier Family Heritage Center. In addition to these amazing resources, Dane County Parks has a large volunteer program and sixteen friends groups that support individual county parks. Last year we had over 3,500 volunteers that put in an unbelievable 66,880 hours or work!

In order to support our parks and volunteers, we have decided to create t-shirts that celebrate our amazing parks and trails and we need your help coming up with exciting park-themed designs!

What’s in it for you besides the good feeling you will have supporting local parks? If your design is selected, you will receive a $50 Dane County Parks gift certificate, five shirts to distribute as you like, and also your name and website (if applicable) posted next to your shirt design at our June 2, 2018 Parks & Trails Unite Festival.  

Ideas for themes:

  • Camping
  • Hiking
  • Biking
  • Winter Sports
  • Dog Parks
  • Natural spaces and water
  • Disc Golf
  • ...and other park and trails themed designs!


  • Design must be parks-themed and include the words "Dane County Parks"
  • Art should be a high resolution vector format (such as an .eps or .pdf file)
  • By submitting a design, you are agreeing to let us use it for t-shirt printing without any expectation of financial compensation.
