Saint Paul Parks and Recreation is a nationally accredited and gold medal award-winning organization that manages 179 parks and open spaces, AZA-accredited Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, 25 city-operated recreation centers, more than 100 miles of trails, an indoor and two outdoor aquatic facilities, a public beach, a variety of premium sports facilities, municipal golf courses, and Great River Passage. Our mission is to make Saint Paul the most livable city in American by facilitating the creation of active lifestyles, vibrant places, and a vital environment.

The Environmental Education program connects people to parks and nature through programming opportunities. Research shows that connecting with nature has a variety of benefits for physical and mental health. Research also shows, however, that within the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area, people of color are using the natural spaces of our regional parks at a lower rate than white people.

The City of Saint Paul is committed to reducing and eliminating this disparity through intentionally inclusive outreach and programming for underrepresented communities. The Family Nature Club program is a nature play meet-up for people of all ages, where families can meet and build community with each other while reaping the benefits of connecting with nature. FNCs are led by volunteers from within the community, with training and support from the Environmental Education program. The VISTA member will expand the FNC program, which launched as a pilot in 2017, by recruiting and training volunteers from diverse communities in Saint Paul to organize and lead FNCs.

ECFE provides universal access to programming at 11 Saint Paul locations in public school buildings. Parents pay what they can afford, and attend classes that best fit their family needs and busy schedules. Saint Paul ECFE serves all families, making it unique in that it is not a targeted program. We work with about 2,000 families annually through our classes, special events and home visiting programs. This includes families with doctorate degrees to those who do not speak English. Our programming seeks to meet families with where they are at in their parenting journey and providing education and support along the way. We are often told by participating parents that they come for their children, but stay because they get so much out of the program from parent education, support and the sense of community that develops. Our challenge, as part of an urban district, is in recruiting new families. Saint Paul is a mobile city, with a diverse population and many languages spoken. We have a limited budget for marketing. Our challenges lie in getting the message out to the community regarding our programming and creating an accessible pathway for families to attend, specifically low-income families.
