A lot of people are telling you to get outdoors and rec-reate these days but this group has been saying it for years. The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving recreation, park, and leisure facilities; promoting wellness; developing and influencing public policy in support of recreation; connecting tourism workers with park information; and developing and disseminating recreation program information. To that end, the organization lobbies local, state, and national government and hosts events like the National Health & Livability Summit. It also partners with other organizations to promote outdoor activities for kids. NRPA was formed in 1907.
