Healthy People Healthy Parks
Through a partnership with Harford County Parks and Recreation, the City of Havre de Grace, Harford County Health Department, UM Upper Chesapeake Health, and the Harford County Public Schools, Healthy Harford is launching a Harford County Healthy Parks/Healthy People program. Healthy Parks/Healthy People is a National Parks Department program designed to reframe the role of parks and public lands as an emerging, powerful health prevention strategy. With this renewed focus on health, we hope to bring about lasting change in Americans’ lifestyle choices and their relationship with nature and the outdoors.
Please join us for a great series of monthly events from May to October – coming to a park near you!
