HOW TO REGISTER
As we transition out of summer into our amazing fall season, I encourage you to enjoy the outdoors. There is significant scientific research on the benefits of being outdoors. According to a 2016 Business Insider article, being outdoors improves short-term memory, restores mental energy and reduces stress. It is also a great way to build physical strength and endurance. In this Program Guide, you will find several opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. From fitness in the parks to hanging out at Steam Pump Ranch on Saturdays, there is something for everyone. The Doggie Dash n’ Dawdle is one that your four legged family member can enjoy too. Enjoy browsing through our Fall 2018 Program Guide, and I’ll see you in the parks!
