Learning Lab: A Parks and Rec Month Celebration!

Learning Lab: A Parks and Rec Month Celebration!
It’s Parks & Recreation Month across the nation, and we're sharing stories from Illinois that celebrate the experiences and memories that park and recreation professionals help make happen. Moderated by NRPA’s Open Space Radio host Cort Jones and Marissa Moravec of the Mundelein Park and Recreation District, this event will feature inspiring stories from Leticia DeLaFuente and her grandson’s experience with the Fox Valley Special Recreation Association, Juarez Hawkins and her experience with cultural arts programming for youth in Chicago Park District’s South and West sides, and Commissioner Buzz Puccio’s 29 years of service to residents of the Bloomingdale Park District. Come join Cort and Marissa for some fun and listen to these inspiring stories that YOU make happen! This event is offered in cooperation with the Illinois Association of Park Districts.
