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.

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.

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.
