Why YOU Should Attend Parks School 2019?

Inspired by the incredible diversity of parks, landscapes and open spaces in this country, Alberta Recreation and Parks Association (ARPA) created the Parks School to gather key partners, educators, students, thinkers, and decision makers to develop ideas and forge connections. This inaugural event is focused on providing professional development and training on the operations side of parks. It will provide an opportunity to keep parks practitioners and professionals current with new trends and industry issues, to connect them with other professionals, and local industry leaders.

The school is split up into two days to maximize the targeted learning for those working in parks and grounds maintenance, and for horticulture practitioners and professionals.
