Picture Yourself Winning Earth Month Selfie Contest

The Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department invites the community to celebrate Earth Month by participating in the Meet Me at the Park Selfie Contest throughout April.

The winner will be chosen on Tuesday, May 1, and will receive a basket filled with Recreation and Parks Department swag.

To enter the contest, take a selfie at your favorite local city park and share it on social media with the hashtag #CSMRPD.

Participants can have multiple entries by sharing selfies at different local parks. To qualify for multiple entries, tag each park visited.

Meet Me at the Park is a national Earth Month campaign designed to help fund local park improvement projects across the country with the help of the National Recreation and Park Association and the Walt Disney Company.

The campaign encourages the promotion of healthy and active lifestyles, conservation initiatives, and equitable access to parks and public space.

Santa Maria has 27 city parks including more than 234 acres of grass, trees and play fields, and maintains the 1,774-acre Los Flores Ranch Park eight miles south of the city.

Questions may be directed to the Recreation and Parks Department, 925-0951, ext. 2260.

— Mark van de Kamp for city of Santa Maria.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
