Hey, what’s that tree?
The Riverside Landscape Advisory Commission (LAC) would like to extend an offer to those interested in learning about the parks adjacent to their homes. The large parks in Riverside get most of the attention on community Workdays, but most of us live closer to one of the smaller parks at intersections within town. Technically, these smaller parks are called “triangles” – even when they are not triangular.
If people from two or more families would like to pick a time that works for them, an LAC Commissioner will volunteer to walk you through up to 3 triangles or 1 of the larger parks and help identify the plants growing there. This will work best before the leaves fall; but we can also schedule Spring 2024 dates if desired.
The LAC seeks to increase understanding and appreciation of the unique landscape of Riverside. The LAC also hopes to identify persons or groups of neighbors willing to work as Stewards with the assistance of the Village Forester, Public Works Department and the LAC to improve our parks.
For 2024, the LAC is asking the Village to provide a small amount of funds that can be dedicated to providing Park Stewards with native plants to beautify their parks.
Contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and suggest dates/times that work for you.
