2 Place Questions: Parents and Additions

1.) I’d like to create a place and in the process there is a step to add a parent. What is the purpose of parent places and how do I choose the appropriate one?

2.) A nearby nature conservancy recently purchased a large tract of land that will be added to it and restored. Yay! How do I get the current place modified to add that area so it all reads as one place?

If you scroll to the bottom of the place page, on the left it shows who has added it (for community-curated places). You can try messaging Aaron, and/or I’d be happy to work with you both to get the place boundary updated.
