Endnote - Preparing Our Park and Recreation Kids - Kristin Stratton
Join NRPA President and CEO Kristine Stratton as she discusses how being a park and recreation kid helped her realize at an early age the essential role that the profession plays during a child’s formative years — from instilling a healthy lifestyle and self-confidence in youth through sports, to teaching kids about nature through parks and trails. Parks and recreation helps put our youngest community members on the right path toward good overall health and well-being. Learn about NRPA’s initiatives based on its Three Pillars: Health and Wellness, Equity, and Conservation — and how telling your community’s park and recreation stories can help to elevate the field and create greater awareness about your important work. After all, preparing today’s park and recreation kids could help produce tomorrow’s environmental stewards.
