CRC Listening Sessions

The Cincinnati Recreation Commission (CRC) is currently working with Pros Consulting, Incorporated to develop the CRC Master Plan.  As a way to address our environmental challenges, we launched our Recreation Program and Facility Master Plan this month.  This plan will serve as CRC's road map for the next five years.
In an effort to gain additional feedback, we are asking for your assistance.  We would like to invite you to participate in a focus group discussion on March 21, 2018 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  We are offering this opportunity at two locations:  Corryville Recreation Center, 2823 Eden Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45219 and Westwood Town Hall, 3017 Harrison Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45211.  Your input will assist CRC in evaluating our services.  Staff members from Pros Consulting, Incorporated will be conducting the focus group discussions.
During the focus groups, participants will be asked to weigh in on program direction, facility operations, maintenance, and capital improvements based on community needs.  Each discussion will last approximately 90 minutes.

Native Pollinators  Class

Busy Backyard Bees: Rediscovering Native Pollinators

10 am-noonSaturday, March 24
Instructor: Dr. Natalie Boyle

Can the answer to reversing a decline in native pollinators be found in our own backyards? Join us for a closer look at the native bees with special guest Natalie Boyle, a researcher for the USDA's Pollinating Insects Research Unit in Utah. With over 4,000 species described in North America, these incredible bees occur in a diversity of landscapes, ranging from forests to deserts, on agricultural lands, and in our own backyards. In this class, you will learn some simple and effective techniques to support and learn about our under-appreciated native bee communities.
