Green Tips Grow a Monarch safe haven Monarch butterflies are famous for their annual mass-migration, but they need safe havens to live in during the summer months too. Creating a Monarch waystation in your back yard is simple to do using native plants. See page 26 for our new Monarch Waystation program.

Use a gas grill Grilling with propane is a much cleaner and greener way to cook than using charcoal. Briquettes give off far more Volotile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which are pollutants.

For toxic-free methods of keeping mosquitos at bay, try using citronella candles and citronella based repellents. Planting rosemary and using garlic based repellents can also be effective.

I would like to encourage other high school students to come and help out at the Park District, your help is always needed and appreciated! - Haley Cusimano

Haley, a Senior at Glenbard West High School, recently moved to Carol Stream from Chicago, where she completed 62 hours volunteering for the Chicago Park District as a junior camp counselor. Haley began volunteering with the Carol Stream Park District in January 2010.

In the last few months, she has assisted our staff with special events including: Winter in the Park, Daddy Daughter Dance, Mother-Daughter Doll Tea Party, kids egg hunt, Annie Jr., theatre production, the Preschool Fun Fair and the Bunny Bash. We appreciate her enthusiastic spirit and her willingness to pitch in with whatever the task is that needs to be accomplished. She has quickly become a familiar face around the park district.

WAIVER & RELEASE The Carol Stream Park District is committed to conducting its recreation programs and activities in a safe manner and holds the safety of participants in high regard. The Carol Stream Park District continually strives to reduce such risks and insists that all participants follow safety rules and instructions that are designed to protect the participants’ safety. However, participants and parents/guardians of minors registering for the above listed programs/activities must recognize that there is an inherent risk of injury when choosing to participate in recreational activities/programs. You are solely responsible for determining if you or your minor child/ward are physically fit and/or skilled for the activities contemplated by this agreement. It is always advisable, especially if the participant is pregnant, disabled in any way or recently suffered an illness, injury or impairment, to consult a physician before undertaking any physical activity.

WARNING OF RISK Recreational activities are intended to challenge and engage the physical, mental and emotional resources of each participant. Despite careful and proper preparation, instruction, medical advice, conditioning and equipment, there is still a risk of serious injury when participating in any recreational activity. Understandably, not all hazards and dangers can be foreseen. Depending on the particular activity, participants must understand that certain risks, dangers and injuries due to inclement weather, slip and falls, poor skill level or conditioning, carelessness, horseplay, unsportsmanlike conduct, premises defects, inadequate or defective equipment, inadequate supervision, instruction or officiating, and all other circumstances inherent to indoor and outdoor recreational activities exist. In this regard, it must be recognized that it is impossible for the Carol Stream Park District to guarantee absolute safety.

WAIVER AND RELEASE OF ALL CLAIMS AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK Please read this form carefully and be aware that in signing up and participating in the programs listed above, you will be expressly assuming the risk and legal liability and waiving and releasing all claims for injuries, damages or loss which you or your minor child/ward might sustain as a result of participating in any and all activities connected with and associated with these programs (including transportation services and vehicle operations, when provided). I recognize and acknowledge that there are certain risks of physical injury to participants in these programs, and I voluntarily agree to assume the full risk of any and all injuries, damages or loss, regardless of severity, that my minor child/ward or I may sustain as a result of said participation. I further agree to waive and relinquish all claims I or my minor child/ward may have (or accrue to me or my child/ward) as a result of participating in these programs against the Carol Stream Park District, including its officials, agents, volunteers and employees. I have read and fully understand the above important information, warning of risk, assumption of risk and waiver and release of all claims. If registering on-line or via fax, my on-line or facsimile signature shall substitute for and have the same legal effect as an original form signature. Participation will be denied if the signature of adult participant or parent/guardian and date are not on this waiver.

Inclusion Services

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination on the basis of a disability. The park district will make reasonable accommodations in recreation programs to enable participation by an individual with a disability that meets essential eligibility requirements for that leisure program and facilities. If you have questions or believe you have been unfairly discriminated against by the park district, please call (630) 784-6100. Those who use the Telecommunications Device for the Deaf may reach the park district by calling (800) 526-0844.

WDSRA also offers inclusion services for those wishing to participate in regular park district programs but may need assistance. Inclusion is designed to provide the least restrictive environment while providing the maximum opportunity to participate in a program. There is no charge for WDSRA’s support. If you would like assistance, please indicate that special accommodations are needed on the park district registration form. If you have questions, contact WDSRA at (630)-681-0962. Twoweek advance notice is requested for inclusion support.

Special Recreation The benefits of recreation extend far beyond the soccer field or the dance floor. The skills that are learned and practiced in leisure provide a tremendous foundation for life. For an individual with a disability, recreational activities can improve self-confidence, provide socialization opportunities, and reinforce a sense of teamwork and tolerance. They can establish friendships and gain social independence. The benefits are endless!

Use a gas grill Grilling with propane is a much cleaner and greener way to cook than using charcoal. Briquettes give off far more Volotile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which are pollutants.

Even after graduation, I plan to continue volunteering here in Carol Stream. I would like to encourage other high school students to come and help out at the Park District, your help is always needed and appreciated! - Haley Cusimano

Haley, a Senior at Glenbard West High School, recently moved to Carol Stream from Chicago, where she completed 62 hours volunteering for the Chicago Park District as a junior camp counselor. Haley began volunteering with the Carol Stream Park District in January 2010.

In the last few months, she has assisted our staff with special events including: Winter in the Park, Daddy Daughter Dance, Mother-Daughter Doll Tea Party, kids egg hunt, Annie Jr., theatre production, the Preschool Fun Fair and the Bunny Bash. We appreciate her enthusiastic spirit and her willingness to pitch in with whatever the task is that needs to be accomplished. She has quickly become a familiar face around the park district.
