Great Webcast!Review by Jessica
This webcast was really informative! As a person new to the park service, this short course provided much-needed insight to prepare and begin new aquatic programs at various sites. This program is also very informative in providing risk management tools, and the development of a Post Crisis Management Plan. (Posted on 3/25/2020)
