YLP Presents at the first Olmsted Youth Collaborative meeting of 2012

The Olmsted Youth Collaborative is the convergence of four youth programs that are all related to the work of Fredrick Law Olmsted.  Zoo Teens at Zoo New England, Teen Ambassadors from Mass Audubon’s Boston Nature Center, a representative from Branching Out at the Olmsted Center for Landscape Preservation, and YLP all met on Thursday, November 8 at the Franklin Park Zoo.  Each program presented on concepts related to the importance of open spaces and parks in our city.

YLP presented on the importance of community involvement and engagement in open spaces and parks.  Lammy and Alex led an icebreaker game in which the participants answered a series of questions about their relationship with parks.  Then, Eric, Ian, Chris and Bryan led a discussion about what the group considered important qualities of parks.
