Access to nature at the city’s edge:
Our first Walk Around Philadelphia panel discussion was pretty special, w/ a guest appearance by City Councilmember Kendra Brooks alongside our fantastic panelists from Riverfront North Partnership, Cobbs Creek Ambassadors, and The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education.
You can check out this recording of it anytime!
Rescheduled printmaking workshops:
Our print-your-own-map workshops in conjunction w/ the Ecotopian Toolkit project had to be rescheduled because covid finally caught up with me (I’m fine).
We’re doing the workshop at the Independence Seaport Museum on Wednesday June 15th, 2:30–5pm and the one on Penn’s campus might happen in September in conjunction with New Student Orientation.
Can’t make it on the 15th? Hop on my mailing list ’cause there’ll be more…

Climate March Celebration: a party on the city’s edge!
On Sunday May 29th from 2-5pm, my friends from EQAT will be celebrating their recent climate walk accomplishments (& fantastic press coverage) with a little reception at the city’s edge at 61st & Baltimore.
(Yes, that’s also the perimeter walk’s traditional start and finish point.)
You can read more about my experience joining their climate walk in this post, or RSVP here to join us this Sunday!
