A blog for passionate parks and recreation professionals 

In this blog, I hope to share great ideas, insights, and tips with you.

I believe that this parks and recreation blog is filling a major void right now. 

If you're a passionate parks and recreation professional --whether entry-level or director level -- you can use these tips and tricks to improve the work you do and the people you manage.

 

Sometimes I'll post videos from my adventures outside of work, like my RV road trip. 

I believe that we need to practice what we preach - meaning we need to get outside, get exercise, and explore the world a little!

I'm also learning how to use video to communicate online, so you'll see some experimentation with that platform as well.

If you enjoy this parks and recreation blog, you should share it!
