Welcome to the North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department blog!
This blog is envisioned as a place for staff and visitors to share park and department related information and experiences.
The North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department (NDPRD) is responsible for a wide range of outdoor recreational opportunities in the state. Addressing these responsibilities requires staff with very diverse skills and experiences. The department employs administrative personnel, biologists, carpenters and maintenance personnel, planners, managers, IT and GIS specialists, park rangers, interpreter/historians, grant coordinators and many others.
Each one of NDPRD's wonderful staff has her/his own unique view of life in the department and each have stories to tell and information to relay. We hope you enjoy reading their posts.
At least one new post will be added to the blog each week. Kicking off the blog is a post from Project Coordinator, Jason Johnston. Jason is responsible for construction and maintenance projects across the park system. Keeping up with the needs of an increasing number of visitors and the seemingly ever increasing size and utility requirements of today’s RVs is a constant challenge. In this blog Jason talks about some of the steps the department is taking to meet these needs.
