Stay current on the latest trends and best practices in the park and recreation field through NRPA webinars. NRPA offers a broad range of programming to help members stay up-to-date on conservation, health and wellness, and social equity. Brought to you by NRPA and subject matter experts in the field, get high-quality education and training without leaving your home or office.
In recent years researchers, parents and educators have noticed an alarming trend: kids are spending more and more time indoors and less time outside. Outdoor, nature-based experiences are critically important for the development and care of healthy minds and bodies. In this session you'll hear from park and recreation peers about implementing NRPA's newest nature discovery program, Wildlife Explorers, and how anyone - whether they've had nature programming experience or not - can implement it in their afterschool or summer programs.
The presenters will be Lindsay Glasner, K-12 Outreach Coordinator at Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Mary Rapoza and Alexandrea Matthews, of New Bedford Parks Recreation & Beaches, and Lori Robertson, NRPA Director of Conservation.
