Functional and enjoyable pedestrian traffic is one of the most fundamental parts of any great city. So when a group of motivated individuals identified a need for a cleaner, greener, and more walkable downtown, the Greenspace Capture Team was formed!
Capture Team Focus Area:
By recruiting and leveraging community volunteers and available resources, the Greenspace CT is able to take strides towards reaching their goal. While any project is accomplished through a series of smaller efforts, they make sure to keep their end goal in mind at all times. By using green infrastructure, mapping, and native plantings wherever possible, they hope to create continuous greenspace stops throughout the city.
What type of volunteers are we looking for?
Passionate, hard working individuals who love and respect the environment.
Don’t have a green thumb? No problem!
No gardening experience is necessary.
