Come hone your skills as an effective open space champion. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, courtesy of Whole Foods Market.
Saturday March 11, 2017 from 8:30am-1pm, followed by an optional lunch portion from 1-1:30pm. Location: Fenway Community Center, 1282 Boylston Street, Boston.
We'll start with breakfast and mingling at 8:30am, followed by a session on the Boston Parks Department. Then we'll find out how advocates in Roslindale are creating great play spaces. After that, we'll split into four groups to learn about fundraising for parks, park improvement projects, engaging the community, and advocating for state parks. Next, we'll come up with ideas for open space and recreation projects that can benefit from Community Preservation Act funds. Finally, there is an optional lunch-time portion for you to spend more time connecting with other open space supporters from around the city.
This is free and open to everyone from teens up.
