  • Network with over 500 people involved in the broad field of recreation, parks, environmental education, and conservation.
  • Attend educational sessions on the following tracks: professional development, urban recreation, park resources, trails and facilities, aquatics, programming, social media and marketing, inclusion and accessibility, directors, and environmental education.
