$5 • How Does a 10-Minute Walk to a Green Space Change a Community • Thursday • Nov 9 • 6:00 PM - 8:00 pm
Join Trust for Public Land Northwest Director Mitsu Iwasaki for a conversation about the power of parks and green spaces. Having a 10-minute walk to greenspace improves people’s physical and mental health and lowers average area temperatures to help neighborhoods mitigate climate change. Learn about the 10-minute walk campaign – a data-driven effort to deliver parks and public lands where they are needed most in Washington.
Mitsu Iwasaki leads the TPL’s work creating and preserving green spaces so that more people can connect to the joys and benefits of the outdoors. From summits to sound, TPL has helped out the outdoors in reach for 150,000 Washington residents by preserving places like Rattlesnake Ridge, Olympic Sculpture Park, and more. Learn about TPL’s vision for a future where every community has safe, equitable access to a high-quality park within a 10-minute walk of home, and the tools they’re using to do so.
