The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board(MPRB) has provided a link to its community survey on sustainability, hoping that you'll take a few minutes to complete the survey before February 26.
The survey is one way the MPRB is collecting public feedback on its sustainability initiatives – from watering trees to recycling in the parks and at community events. Sustainability was identified in the 2007-2020 Comprehensive Plan as one of the five core organizational values upon which the MPRB performs its work.
The MPRB will use the survey's findings to help plan its education and outreach efforts regarding sustainability in Minneapolis parks, programs and events.
Please feel free to pass the survey link on to others who may be interested in keeping the park system green.
