MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR We’re pleased to bring you the Richland Parks and Recreation 2017 LearnPlayLive Activity Guide. The following pages will provide you with information regarding a variety of activities brought to you by the City of Richland and our partners. We’ve prepared a diverse portfolio of offerings intended to appeal to all ages and interests. We are especially excited about two specific projects. First, we’re currently renovating the Richland Community Center to expand the size of the fitness room. We’re transitioning the existing, under-utilized computer lab space and combining it with an adjacent meeting room. This improvement will accommodate more users, allow for additional exercise equipment, and provide fitness class space. We will relocate the meeting room to the existing fitness room location. The new fitness facility will open in early 2017 and will include many new health and fitness opportunities for patrons. Second, we’ve finished our planning efforts for a renovation to the Richland Public Library to include a permanent “Makerspace”. This project was recently released for public bid and includes construction of a hard-wall room with large glass windows and doors that will house popular hands-on technology, science, art, and other programming. The space will be outfitted with portable tables and chairs and offer maximum flexibility. The “Makerspace” will be under construction this winter and is expected to be open in spring 2017. I hope you get an opportunity to enjoy the new amenities after they are complete and in the meantime please enjoy your winter activities and everything the City and our partners have to offer. Joe Schiessl Director of Parks & Public Facilities


COLUMBIA POINT GOLF COURSE First Green of Washington Links as Labs www.thefirstgreen.org Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Carl Thompson and I’m the Certified Golf Course Superintendent at Columbia Point Golf Course here in Richland. I recently joined the First Green of Washington Links as Labs program. I’m looking to partner with local teachers in using Columbia Point as an outdoor classroom for your STEM curriculum. The First Green was established to provide and promote environmental education. They connect educators with superintendents to host outdoor ‘learning labs’ on their golf courses. This type of lab allows students to perform hands-on experiments and tests within the focus of the school’s environmental science and horticulture curriculum. The First Green was founded in 1997 in the greater Seattle area. This organization achieved tremendous popularity and quickly gained the support of national, regional and local groups. Currently there are programs in Washington, Oregon, California, New Jersey, Florida and British Columbia. There are a number of different topics you can choose for these learning stations– it all depends on your specific agenda. I’ve been provided a Resource Kit with additional lesson plans available on the First Green website. These plans are flexible and easily combined in various ways. Some examples of lesson plans include: • • • •

Measuring irregular areas such as putting green square footage. Volume Calculations – for instance how much sand is needed to topdress a green to a ¼ inch depth? Using a soil sieve device to determine percentages of sand, silt and clay. Testing water quality and pH.

Call today and I’ll include a fun golf activity for your kids. When the lesson is over they can participate in a putting contest. Give your kids a field trip they’ll never forget! Sincerely, Carl Thompson, CGCS Columbia Point Golf Course 509-946-1074 Cell 509-438-5185 cthompson@playcolumbiapoint.com

Stroller Strides Class starts with introductions and warm up which is 5-8 minutes long. Introduce yourself and your children while slowly warming up the muscles and working up the heart rate. Moms will then power walk or jog to the next exercise station. The level of intensity is up to the participant and we offer different modifications based on their specific needs. For safety and liability the children remain fastened into their strollers for the duration of the workout. If at any point the child needs to be attended to (nurse, diaper, tantrum) the mother is more than welcome to pause and tend to the child. Our different exercise stations will target different areas to offer a balanced full-body workout in every class. As a unique fitness solution for moms we incorporate the children to the workout through singing songs, blowing bubbles, reading stories, playing with puppets and other stimulating activities. As a part of the FIT4MOM program, we will offer FREE playdates and get togethers for moms and their children. Often, these meet-ups will happen directly after class such as a craft or fun activity. Participants in the playgroup need not participate in the Stroller Strides class. For all detailed information and to register go to: www.richland.fit4mom.com

Humanities Lectures These lectures are presented free of charge with collaboration between Humanities Washington, Columbia Basin College, The Richland Public Library, The Mid-Columbia Regional Libraries and the East Benton County Historic The Ancient Fruitcake: What Really, Really Old Food Tells Us about History, Culture, Love, and Memory A presentation by Harriet Baskas This talk is not about the old leftovers in the fridge. It is about food that is so old, so unusual, or so meaningful, that no one dares throw it away. Discover the foods archeologists have found buried with mummies, the petrified banana so appealing it sparked a Banana Museum, the 350-year-old fruitcake handed down through generations, 2000-year-old bog butter; and the pickle that has been in a jar since the 1860s. During this “chew and chat,” author and broadcaster Harriet Baskas explores how and why these and other formerly fresh foods may have been forgotten, intentionally tucked away, or preserved due to unusual or peculiar circumstances.

They are caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or by a blow to another part of the body with the force transmitted to the head. They can range from mild to severe and can disrupt the way the brain normally works. Even though most concussions are mild, all concussions are potentially serious and may result in complications including prolonged brain damage and death if not recognized and managed properly. In other words, even a “ding” or bump on the head can be serious. You can’t see a concussion and most sports concussions occur without loss of consciousness. Signs and symptoms of concussion may show up right after the injury, or can take hours to fully appear. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms or signs of concussion yourself, seek attention right away. For current and up-to-date information on concussions go to: www.cdc.gov/concussion Photo Release Photographs of participants may be taken for promotional purposes. Please notify staff or photographer if you do not wish to have your photograph taken.
