Enviroment Report


Supporting a Healthy Urban Environment

As a department we plan for the future by integrating an environmental ethic into our everyday activities. We know that small steps can have a big impact. This work does not happen on its own; it takes the care and commitment of parks professionals to select each tree that gets planted, develop a fieldtrip curriculum, operate a maintenance building thoughtfully and efficiently, and coordinate volunteers.

The 2013 Environmental Stewardship Report: Our City, Our Parks, Our Environment highlights the excellent work of staff, volunteers and partners in stewarding a healthy environment for the next generation. Our work is spread throughout Parks and Recreation and takes many forms from operational choices to programming to developing new parks and buildings. Although the report is focused on environmental goals and objectives, our work also supports people, communities and the financial sustainability of our parks and our city.
