Learn from the Leaders!

"Leadership is Situational. Leadership can come from anyone. You just have to not be afraid to fail; to know when to push and know when to step back."
Everyday is different. We have the built in flexibility to continue to reinvent ourselves no matter what position we are in." ​
“If you don’t tell people what you expect, and what you need, then you’re not going to get it."
“Playgrounds are great natural classrooms for kids to learn about themselves”​
"When you post about success and optimism and the beauty of natural resources and the incredible staff that are keeping it in operation... it's a win-win."
“Parks and recreation can highly influence the positive messaging and the positive experience for our youth.”
“There’s really no such thing as failure because we are constantly learning and growing as a team -- and also as an individual -- to help the community.”
