Connecting Through Research 

The Alberta Recreation and Parks Association, in partnership with the University of Alberta and Mount Royal University, is pleased to announce the second annual Connecting through Research stream of the ARPA conference.

Connecting through Research brings together recreation and parks scholars and practitioners to share and discuss new research and ideas. It is a great opportunity to broaden professional networks and strengthen the recreation and parks sector, while enjoying one of Canada’s most beautiful mountain locations.

The call for presentations is now closed for 2016. Keep your eye out for another call next Spring.

The Connecting through Research sessions are scheduled for Friday Oct. 21 and Saturday Oct. 22.
