Park Pride's Parks and Greenspace Conference: The Nature of Our City
Monday, August 17th, 8:30am- 5:00pm (Atlanta Botanical Gardens)
Our ability to access and enjoy nature is a key component for living a happy, healthy life. For those who live in cities, parks are one of the few, if not only, places to experience nature daily. We invite all to join us to explore equitable planning and access to the nature of our cities, and its impact on our health, the fabric of our communities, and the vitality our urban environment.
Although it’s not advertised, we offer a limited number of special student rate tickets for $50, including breakfast, lunch, and parking. Any interested students can contact Ruth Pimentel (firstname.lastname@example.org) using their .edu e-mail addresses to receive reduced-cost registration. In addition to reduced rate tickets, Park Pride also has a limited number of volunteer positions for the conference, who attend for free. Volunteers have responsibilities they must fulfill, but can engage with conference activities when not on-duty. Students who would like to volunteer at the conference and attend for free can contact Chris Lemons (email@example.com).
