The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy Seeks Community Participation at Quarterly Meetings in 2022

The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy (BOPC) invites the public to join the Olmsted Community Alliance (OCA). The goals of the OCA are to (1) enhance collaboration and awareness between BOPC, park neighbors and community partners, (2) provide opportunities for community dialogue, feedback and input throughout the Olmsted parks, (3) build representation from every Olmsted park district, and, (4) increase public knowledge of BOPC’s role and mission for Buffalo’s historic landscapes.

The first round of 2022 Olmsted Community Alliance quarterly meetings will occur on Wednesdays between Jan 19 and Feb 16:
