GOT Parks

In January of this year, I was fortunate enough to be accepted as a new Team Member for GOT Parks.  GOT (Get Out To) Parks is a joint initiative of the Canadian Parks Council and the Child & Nature Alliance of Canada.  Their ultimate goal is to provide an online destination for young people to learn about Canada's National, Provincial, and Territorial parks and to encourage Canadian youth to get outside and experience parks firsthand!

The initiative was started in December of 2012 with a website designed by young Canadians for young Canadians.  An Advisory Group was formed from a group of people who were passionate about better connecting youth with the beautiful parks Canada has to offer.  The Advisory Group, which is now known as the GOT Parks Team, were responsible for assisting in website maintenance, providing fresh ideas and feedback, and ensuring the site stayed true to its audience. 

As a Team Member I have to be an active participant in promoting and marketing GOT Parks by contributing to their webpage and various social media sites.  If you'd like to stay connected with what GOT Parks is doing, please visit the website or follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.  

Enjoying Canada's parks through a variety of my favourite activities!
I am really looking forward to this opportunity of working with the GOT Parks team.  I hope we can continue to build on this initiative and encourage young people to experience Canada's parks for themselves!
