The Did You Know Program is an advocacy and education program developed by Lee’s Summit, Missouri, and owned by Missouri Park and Recreation Association. The MRPA Board of Directors approved the purchase and management of the program and the Minnesota Recreation and Park Foundation is the founding partner.
The Did You Know committee has developed a database template that agencies will use to provide their research and statement information to MRPA. The Association will upload the information to the Missouri site for national use, and also keep the Minnesota data on the MRPA website.
