PITTSBURGH PARKS CONSERVANCY
SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY FELLOW
Other than preparing and coordinating volunteers for the Panther Hollow Extravaganza, I partook in four tabling events, three other volunteer days (one with the Westinghouse corporation, another with 7th graders from Propel Schools near the Waterfront), and I assisted the folks at the Frick Environmental Center with their first grade Habitat Explorers program yesterday. April has been intense! (but enjoyable).
The Parks Conservancy prepared a blog about the Panther Hollow Extravaganza, which includes a blurb from yours truly, as well as a picture slideshow including Katrina, Miriam, Jake, and many others of the nearly 200 people we had out in Schenley Park on a rainy Saturday morning!
