California Park & Recreation Society—Aquatic Section

The purpose of the Aquatics Section is to unite aquatic professionals and others concerned with any aspect of California's diverse aquatic environments, and to provide educational opportunities to aquatic professionals. Additionally, we aim to disseminate information affecting aquatic professionals in California, and to provide a forum to meet their varying needs. We engage in state and federal advocacy efforts that support and enhance the aquatic profession and safety of aquatic activities.
