Great Expectations: Can Revenue Goals and Equity Co-Exist?

The roots of the recreation profession lie in the Playground Movement of the mid-1890s. We were a social service created to keep children safe, but today we are asked to be a service that recovers all or part of its costs, while still providing a level of social services - can these expectations co-exist? During this session, we will review how to identify and address community needs, tackle cost-recovery goals and meet the mandate for equity in services. These two mandates can co-exist if a relevant service is provided based on planning, market segmentation, competition analysis and financial performance monitoring.

Great Urban Parks Campaign

NRPA, in collaboration with the American Planning Association (APA), created the Great Urban Parks Campaign to improve environmental and social outcomes in underserved communities through promoting and advancing green infrastructure stormwater management projects within parks. Green infrastructure uses natural processes to slow the flow of and filter water to protect and restore clean and healthy waterways. Additionally, it is an efficient way to increase community resilience by addressing stormwater runoff, reducing localized flooding, and increasing biodiversity and wildlife habitat while simultaneously providing communities increased access to recreational opportunities and to nature

Greener Parks for Health Webinar Series

Across the nation, low-income and communities of color are disproportionately experiencing the damaging impacts of climate-related weather events such as flooding and extreme storm surges. With a history of under-investment and discriminatory policies, these marginalized communities are frequently located in areas with failing public infrastructure, which includes a lack of access to quality parks and green spaces. These conditions put undue strain on the physical well-being, mental health and environmental living conditions of residents, while also leaving them ill-equipped to prepare, mitigate and recover from extreme events.

The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is working to equip park and recreation professionals with the tools and knowledge to advocate for and plan green infrastructure projects in parks to address climate impacts, improve community well-being and advance equitable access to quality green spaces and parks. This webinar series will highlight findings from the Greener Parks for Health project, including evidence connecting green infrastructure to improved health as well as green infrastructure focused targeted messaging, policy and funding mechanisms, and case studies.

Hiring the Homeless: City of Boise's Successful Work Program

This webinar focuses on how park and recreation professionals can partner with local shelters to successfully identify, process, hire and supervise people in their community experiencing homelessness. In Boise, Idaho, the parks and recreation department hires individuals from the Interfaith Sanctuary shelter. This groundbreaking work program, now entering its third year, has been very successful with numerous participants graduating into seasonal roles with the department. Former Interfaith Sanctuary guests have moved into their own apartments and purchased homes and vehicles as a result of the opportunity provided through the program. Doug Holloway, director of Boise Parks and Recreation, outlines how you can start a similar program while discussing some of the challenges and success stories that have made this program a model for other cities across the country.

How Are You Going To Kill Weeds in Parks Without Glyphosate?

The use of the most commonly used weed-killer in the world, glyphosate, which is found in the product Roundup, is likely to soon be banned in your community and in your park system. Although EPA declared the pesticide safe in 2019, the controversy over the safety of glyphosate rages, fueled by a growing body of evidence regarding the negative effects on human health and the environment. Cities and counties are already taking action to ban the use of glyphosate in public places, leaving park and rec agencies few alternatives to halt the spread of invasive species and control aggressive weeds in park landscapes. What will your agency do to control weeds in your parks when this herbicide is banned? Learn about possible alternatives that are safer and less toxic and which the public will support even if your park landscape areas have a lot more weeds than you ever thought they would have before.
