ANNOUNCEMENTS
Fred Henley, BLA '60, will be presenting on his career as a landscape architecture in the public sector on Friday, March 13 at 10 am in Seaton 105.

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.
