Welcome Center Opportunities

The NASPD cannot control the degree or details of participation in each state park system. In addition, state parks head offices in Colorado and Virginia are especially enthusiastic about Let’s Go Paddling. If you are a welcome center in these states we encourage you to partner with a nearby state park.

  • Invite interpretive staff to present a program during your paddlefest or “intro to paddling” free day; most state parks have lots of swag they are eager to get into the public’s hands
  • Plan National Trails Day paddling activity, June 5, 2010, especially state managed riverways
  • Plan a National Get Outdoors Day activity, June 12, 2010
  • Identify any state park commemorative days and offer to host a paddling component

If you are already working with a state park, or forge a new relationship with a state park unit in your region, or would like contact info for Colorado or Virginia State Parks directors, please let us know so we can help connect you and publicize your efforts – email .
