In 2007, The California Parks Company developed a nationally recognized, program we named FitKid® because we were concerned about children and obesity and wanted to develop a program where children would be rewarded for making healthy choices. As part of the FitKid program, children can earn stickers by accomplishing any of the ten points on the Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights while visiting participating parks.
Capture California is a free game in which teams of two to three players post photos of their outdoor adventures on social media, to win prizes from REI, Southwest Airlines and Apple. This outdoor social media game was created to encourage teams to enjoy the great outdoors in California.
Quagga Inspection Services
Quagga Inspection Services, LLC has developed the Quagga Inspections Database, or QID. This proprietary tool allows for the real time tracking of CF numbered vessels, out of state vessels, QID and other non-registered float craft as they access inspected lakes. The advantage of QID is that inspections and failures are recorded and transmitted in real time to all other inspection facilities in the district or consortium of regional lakes, making it possible to track vessels by type, location, or status on a quarantine list.
Lake administrators will also be able to review statistical data for the usage of their facilities including the number and times of launches, the types of vessels, and the zip code from which users originate.
This system can be accessed though any web enabled phone, PDA or laptop with an internet or cellular connection.
