“Since coming on board just a few months ago, Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s (CCPR) desire to focus on environmental education is insurmountable. I am very excited to be a part of this team and offer environmental and educational opportunities to the community. Anytime you dig into natural history and get your hands dirty, it leaves a lasting impression of the importance of our environment,” said Brittany McAdams, Natural Resources Coordinator for CCPR.

Community members are also encouraged to get involved with this series by volunteering. It is CCPR’s hope that the success of this program series will create ambassadors for the parks and encourage others to become a part of their education to the community.
