As part of the Healthy Parks Healthy People initiative, the East Bay Regional Park District invited youth ages 12 to 18 to enter the Get Active! Youth Creativity Contest last year, to showcase their talents and share with others the importance of the outdoors in their lives. The Park District celebrates the creativity of the participants, and is pleased to announce an exhibit of selected works, now through the end of August at the Contra Costa County Public Library in Brentwood.
