Nevada Chapter

Name of activity: Last Chance Park Youth Outreach
Date: April 24, 2009 from 3:30-5:30 pm (tentative)
Location: Boys & Girls Club, Pahrump, Nevada (grades 4-6, 25-30 children)
Additional sponsors or participating organizations: National Park
Service/Rivers, Trails & Conservation Assistance Program

Brief description of event: We will be holding a charette in Pahrump, Nevada
May 28-30, 2009. The charette is for Last Chance Park. The youth event
provides an opportunity for the children to have a chance to “design” a park. The
event format used will be one that another chapter used last year. We will have
a large map of the project area with “park components” for the children to decide
what should be included in the park. We will have more components shown than
what the site can be designed for so the children understand that as landscape
architects we have to make decisions as to what components are better suited
for a site. I hope to get a list of the kids’ names prior to the event in order to
make the “Landscape Architect for a Day” certificates.
