Princeton Alumni Panel & Paw-lunteer Day “In Nature’s Service”
Mark your calendars! October 27th is PCGA’s Fall Paw-lunteer Day of Service, which will feature an environmental service project as well as a luncheon and Princeton discussion panel titled “Regeneration, Connectivity & The Impact of Multi-use Trails in Furthering Community Development: City of Lithonia as Case Study.”
The panel will feature several prominent Princetonians in the field of environmental preservation, including Deborah Jackson ’74, Mayor of Lithonia, and Sally Sears ’75, Founding Director of The South Fork Conservancy. Their conversation will share insights into repairing Atlanta’s notorious sprawl, creating a vigorous public appetite for restored green spaces, and shaping new urban landscapes in sustainable ways.
In addition, participants will have the opportunity to assist with trail clearing under the Park Pride Masterplan for Lithonia Community Park. Lithonia has a distinct history and character as the center of much of the granite quarrying activity in the region, and the downtown still retains its Main Street and some of the older buildings. Lithonia is located at the head of a network of trails connecting Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area, Panola Mountain State Park, and the Monastery of the Holy Spirit.
We hope you will join us for this very special day of learning and service!
