Urban Ecology Framework Session at Park Pride’s Park Meeting
On the second Thursday of every month at 7:30am, Park Pride brings together community leaders and park advocates from throughout Atlanta for education, networking and strategy. Representatives from dozens of Friends of the Park Groups, park conservancies and the parks department visit a different park to learn more about the community efforts in that park, discuss current park and greenspace issues and support each other in efforts to improve our parks and our park system.
This month, park advocates are invited to join us at the Trees Atlanta Kendeda Center for an opportunity to give direct input on the Urban Ecology Framework (UEC). An effort of the City of Atlanta’s Department of Planning and led by the consultant Biohabitats, the UEF will help determine what aspects of nature in Atlanta should be preserved, restored, and accentuated as our urban core grows and develops. This framework, which will emphasize equity and inclusiveness, will serve as a guide to creating a citywide green network that will benefit all city residents.
Please join us for this important discussion that will impact the future of greenspace in our city for generations to come! Invite your friends and family, your coworkers, neighbors… everyone needs to have a voice in this conversation!
It’s an early meeting, 7:30 – a.m., but we’ll bring the coffee and donuts… you just need to bring your passion for parks!
