Ideas for Interacting with Your Community During this Time

Many of these ideas use little or no additional resources. Don't let webcasting scare you! It is fairly easy and can be absolutely free. If your agency has a Facebook page, that is the easiest place to host a live event or class. If you want more control over who sees it, Zoom and Cisco Webex offer free platforms to host an online gathering.
  • Host a daily "PE" time for kids via social media or a webinar platform. This can be an uploaded video, live, or a list of activities to do.
  • Give tours via your phone camera of facilities and post them on your social media for viewers (relevant article)
  • Host an educational session with an animal in your care such as rehabilitating owls or turtles at your nature park.
  • Post a picture of one of your facility or park features (a dugout, fountain, treehouse, slide, etc.) and encourage a short story to be written using the item pictured as the scene. This can be for all ages!
  • Host a Coffee Chat and invite your active adults who are able to get on the computer to meet with others.
  • Participate in the City Nature Challenge!
  • Tallahassee Best Practices for Social Media
  • Palm Coast's Virtual Programming Plan

Resources
At FRPA, we know you are monitoring the Coronavirus personally and professionally as government employees. We wanted to provide a few resources that may specifically help you, the park and recreation professional, as we map this territory together.
As we hear of additional resources specific to park and recreation professionals, public space managers, childcare workers, etc., we will communicate this with you. Stay well and wash your hands!

What Agencies are Doing in Response to Park and Facility Closures and Program Cancellations

Check out what agencies are doing for their communities by means of virtual interactions. Some of these screenshots include ideas for connecting with your community for recreation or alternate programming and others are ways to communicate with your public in easy, comprehensible ways that do not allow for misinterpretation. Also, follow @frpagram on Instagram and check our Highlights reel for more ideas! We hosted a Zoom Chat about this topic also. Check it out here.

Below is a list of webinars offered from organizations/companies that FRPA associates with. These are simply listed for your interest and are not brought to you by FRPA nor will FRPA keep track of any CEUs associated with these offerings.
