DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE Thank you for picking up your copy of the Winter 2018 Learn Play Live magazine. Inside you’ll find activities, recreation opportunities, educational programming, and general information about parks, recreation and library services in the City. We are proud to provide these services in a cost effective manner to benefit our patrons and participants. If you are like me you’re curious to know how much it costs each Richland citizen. Recreation

Park and Facility Maintenance

$112.98 annually per citizen

Library

Revenue from registrations, rentals and other sources additionally offset these costs to provide added value to our citizens.

Please enjoy the winter season and I look forward to seeing you at one of our numerous offerings.

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!

Interested in becoming a member of TCOCC? Newcomers are invited to come to our training location and paddle with us on all regularly scheduled days. The club practices are held at Columbia Park Marina, three days per week, on the Columbia River. Notify the club through the website and a paddler will meet with you, half an hour prior to scheduled practice, for orientation. We will ask you to fill out a liability waiver, pay a $10.00 fee for temporary insurance, and we will provide you with a paddle, instruction, and a fun day. You are welcome to paddle with us two or three times before deciding whether to become a member. No experience needed! Must be 18 years of age and know how to swim.

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.
