Do you see important connection with the role you play in the Park District and our future on this planet? Would you like others in our community to know more about your efforts?
“Yes! My efforts with the Park Ridge Park District to establish native natural areas, restore a vibrant urban forest, and utilize native plant materials are part of a global effort to design a built environment that is inclusive of natural systems. The positive impacts of small design moves like utilizing native plants in our parks can:
- reduce our community’s carbon footprint
- promote water conservation
- strengthen our urban ecology
At a global-scale, our myriad local impacts can promote positive change. By showing that sustainable buildings and landscapes are also aesthetically beautiful, I hope others in our community and throughout the Greater Chicagoland Area are inspired. Together, we can set an example and design a better environment for future generations.”
