In collaboration with Park Prescriptions (PaRx), BCRPA has launched a 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. 

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.

Toolkit Resources:

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 our 2023 webinar, or contact PaRx with any questions.

Promote Your Event!

Make sure to use #JRPM2024 when promoting or posting photos and stories during June, to highlight your community's activities and help inspire others!
