  • District & Section Challenge - July

    Hi Admin Section, 

    Here are the details for July's challenge. 

    This month, we are launching a social media challenge. We encourage all members to share a photo of where they planted their Parks Make Life Better seeds or display their stickers, which they should have received from CPRS this week. Members can post their images on Facebook and Instagram – the more interesting the spot, the better! They will need to use the hashtag #ParksMakeLifeBetter, tag CPRS (Facebook – California Park & Recreation Society, Instagram – cprs_ca), and include the District/Section that they are a part of.

    If any members have not received their seeds and stickers from CPRS, they should wait until the end of this week and then contact me at
