Happy Tuesday!

During the month of July, NCRPA started The Parks Baton project (#ParksBaton), a collaborative photo experiencing showing the nation how awesome recreation and parks people and places are through Instagram. The inspiration was all thanks to the RDU Baton! The Parks Baton lasted the month of July in honor to celebrate parks and recreation month by showing the lives of the people who work in our field!

My current blog discusses how NCRPA extended the Parks Baton to a once a week project. Beginning this month, NCRPA will feature a new baton carrier eachThursday! To learn more on how to get your department involved, please read my current blog. Remember, social media is a great way to share information within your community on how to lead a balanced and healthy lifestyle. It is up to us to create and inspire others!Click the following link for more information on The Parks Baton:
