65th Annual APRA Conference & Expo

This year’s theme will revolve around the field of parks and recreation and its impact on the health of our community. Parks and public health is a trending topic throughout the nation, we hope to explore how our profession can continue to create healthy communities and demonstrate our fundamental role in enhancing play and physical environments. In addition, how can those who provide these services also practice positive choices in health, mind, body and spirit in their own lives.
