What If Private Citizens Took It Upon Themselves To Steward Harper Park Such That It Becomes a Beacon and Symbol of the Unique Beauty and Wonder of This Place and Community?
Let’s come together to protect Harper Park by developing plans and taking actions that will respect the ecological sensitivity of this place while opening its cultural and natural heritage to all people.
Harper Park is one of the City’s most significant forests. It is a hidden world of ecological health and complexity.
We are inviting you — artists, naturalists, scientists, youth, and children — to discover together a path to protecting the ecological treasure Harper Park is in our city. We invite you to join in a full-day Summit to experience the transformative power of deep dialogue and discovery when something that matters very much to all of us is at stake.
Please join us in a process of community-engaged conservation and stewardship, to bring together ideas, skills, resources, and knowledge necessary to protect the species and life reliant on a healthy Harper Park and to share in its responsible enjoyment.
Saturday, March 25, 2017 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
You Will Experience:
Power of Many Voices
Celebration of Diversity of Thought, Culture, and Spirituality
Integration of Science Into Planning
Respect for Precious Resources
Creating a Community Plan for Harper Park
It is possible for us to navigate the dynamic community interests in rich supportive relationships between groups and with City Hall with ease, peace, and growth. We can build deep cohesion and community by connecting and listening to one another. Together we will find a way to serve everyone’s needs as well as those of the Park.
