Virginia State Parks wasJoe Elton, the Director of Virginia State Parks and my colleagues–Tom Cervenak, TJ Nolen, Jim Wyman, Robert Chapman, Daniel Jordan, and Scott Bowen. We made new friends and left with some great ideas!
Virginia State Parks staff and private campground owners get to know each other
TJ Nolen and Almeta Beveridge talk about campground operations
My challenge to you, blog readers, is to help us GET MORE PEOPLE OUTDOORS whetherit is in a private campground. Too many people have disconnected from nature, passing on this indifference to their children which in turn affects environmental and recreational initiatives that will impact all of us in the years to come!
Staci Martin, Mary Evans, Jim Wyman talk about marketing
Encourage someone who you know has never camped, to join you on a day trip or overnight adventure OUTDOORS! Introduce your friends, neighbors, and relatives to the joy of roasting s'mores over an open fire,ofrefreshing salt breeze on the coast or the fresh mountain air,ofgoing to sleep to the songs of tree frogs and to wake up to the chirps and trills of songbirds.
