June is Recreation and Parks Month!
Plan an event in nature to celebrate June is Recreation & Parks Month
June is Recreation and Parks Month (#JRPM2023) supports and amplifies our advocacy and promotion of recreation and parks as essential to the health and wellness of all British Columbians.
JRPM is also your opportunity to celebrate and promote your local recreation and parks programs, spaces, places and people!
To help you do this, we've put together a number of promotional materials you can use - see below.
New this year - Park Prescriptions
In collaboration with Park Prescriptions (PaRx), BCRPA has launched a new toolkit of resources and ideas for activities you can host in your community to highlight the health benefits of nature during June is Recreation and Parks Month 2023.
An initiative of the BC Parks Foundation, PaRx is Canada's national evidence-based nature prescription program that works with healthcare professionals to prescribe time in nature for patient and planetary health.
Interested in finding out if there is a PaRx health prescriber in your community that could participate in your June is Recreation and Parks Month event? Email Parks Prescriptions directly to find out.
To learn more about PaRx, watch the video from our April 3 webinar, or contact PaRx with any questions.
Promote Your Event!
Make sure to use #JRPM2023 when promoting or posting photos and stories during June, to highlight your community's activities and help inspire others!
We'll be re-posting and promoting your events and stories through our social media channels to showcase all the community-based activities family, friends and neighbours do together.
