Washington Parks Seek Young Ambassadors
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is urging eligible young people to apply to the America’s State Parks Ambassador Program, a nonprofit organization promoting the value and beauty of state park systems across the country.
According to a press release, young adults between the ages of 16-28, who enjoy the outdoors and like to write, blog, take photos or videos and use social media, are eligible to apply.
The ambassador program is a youth-led movement started in 2010 to promote and support the state park systems nationwide, to encourage healthy active outdoor lifestyles, connect people to nature and increase public awareness about the value of nearly 8,000 “close to home” state parks all over the country, according to a news release from America’s State Parks.
The program is looking for young adults who are passionate about parks and want to help promote the special recreational, historic and natural values of state parks by sharing their own personal experiences in state parks. Participants use the program’s website and social media tools to communicate their passion for state parks.
