NRPA Research Sessions Book of Abstracts

The NRPA Research Sessions (NRS) Book of Abstracts provides a sampling of the existing research related to parks and recreation. Each year at the NRPA Annual Conference, researchers present abstracts aligned with the thematic areas of health and wellness, conservation, equity, recreation administration, and methodology. The NRS abstracts are intended to both advance parks and recreation research, and provide practical application for parks and recreation professionals and providers.
