As Americans adjust to the changes that come with social distancing, many are turning to the great outdoors as park grounds, trails, and greenways remain open for business. 

Nasha McCray, director of the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department, says they're finding new ways to offer programs and safely engage the community.

That includes live Facebook videos highlighting wildlife education, how to make your own musical instruments at home, and athletic tutorials.

And for those who might not be able to get to the parks, they'll also compile virtual video tours that will be available in the next few weeks.

“We will be recording some videos, like a GoPro video of mountain bike rides, trail hikes, doing some tours of our gardens, how to play disk golf,” she says.

McCray says future tutorials will also highlight things you can do in your own backyard.
