What Would Johnny Kaw Do? Manhattan Parks and Recreation is updating the City Park Master Plan and is asking for LARCP student volunteers to assist with a Community Engagement Event on Saturday, March 14 from 9 am - 1:30 pm at Wefald Pavilion in City Park, the heart of Aggieville's St. Patty's Day activities. MPRD needs 2-3 volunteers each hour to meet and engage citizens in conversation about the future of the park. This is a great opportunity to interact directly with Manhattan residents on a real project. Plus, volunteers will get a free Johnny Kaw Master Plan t-shirt. If you are interested in volunteering for an hour, or for the whole day, contact Wyatt Thompson, PLA, ASLA @ thompson@cityofmhk.com.
