Programming While Social Distancing: Creative Strategies to Engage Communities

With the park and recreation landscape changing every day in response to COVID-19, many cities have closed recreation centers, park facilities, and in some cases, even parks and trails in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.  Park staff are adapting to this new environment in creative ways - taking traditional programming online and creating new programming to engage the community around physical activity, connection to nature, and mental wellness. 


Fee: Free

At the time of this post, the webinar requires "registration".  Completing the registration form will grant access to the recording.
