Through this partnership, FVSRA works to provide additional training to park district staff and when necessary, an inclusion companion to assist the registrant within a Park District program. For more information regarding Inclusion Services, please contact Jackie Salemi, Inclusion Manager at FVSRA at JackieS@fvsra.org.
