Come Hang Out with Us!

Join us for our first ever Health

Matters café conversation

using Google Hangouts

an online video conferencing tool.


The purpose of the Health Matters series is to provide

opportunities for staff at all levels of the

organization to connect, share, and learn

about the NPS Healthy Parks Healthy People

initiative, and to build a community of

practice that helps to advance the role of

parks in contributing to people’s health and

well-being.


The theme of the first conversation series

is “EveryBody Walk!” Join in on a small group conversation with

NPS staff and partners on May 30, to explore practical,

effective, and creative ways to establish and

maintain walking programs.


Reservations will be first-come, first serve.

Please RSVP by May 21 to reserve your spot.
