    Hi Parks Make Life Better supporter!

    For a third year, we are promoting Parks Make Life Better! (PMLB) month by partnering with Agents of Discovery– an augmented reality game (think Pokemon GO) that you can set up in your parks.  Interested?? Here’s the scoop….

    What a CPRS Agents of Discovery Partner – and CPRS receive:

    • Up to 20 CPRS agencies can set up a FREE account with Agents of Discovery, for the months of June (set up) and July (launch game for Parks Make Life Better! month)
      • Agencies who participated last year are eligible to participate again
      • Open to agencies who are not current A of D subscribers only
      • NEW this year - Your very own custom A of D Avatar, dressed in a PMLB shirt, of course!
    • You create your Parks Make Life Better! ‘missions’ within one of your parks (or 2 or 5 or however many parks you’d like), then promote this fun and physically distancing capable game out to your communities
    • Training via webinar is a MUST, provided by Agents of Discovery - June 4 or 11
    • Set up of the game is very easy and shouldn’t take more than an hour to complete, depending on how detailed you want your game to be – seriously!
    • Agents of Discovery does the rest… including tracking how many people interact with your PMLB Missions, which missions were most liked, what parks were most visited, etc
    • Your agency receives a great engagement tool for your community to interact with (while physically distancing) in your park(s), as well as data to back up what that engagement looked like

    Our friends at Agents of Discovery will:

    • Give up to 20 CPRS Agencies FREE access to their platform for the months of June (set up) and July (launch game for PMLB month)
    • Create a custom A of D Avatar for each participating agency, dressed in a PMLB shirt!
