Black Landscapes Matter


The Beerline Trail Neighborhood Development Project invites you to attend "Black Landscapes Matter". It will be hosted as a Zoom webinar from 12:00pm - 1:30pm on Tuesday, March 30. Featuring keynote speaker Walter Hood, this event will discuss the concept plan for the creation of a Linear Park on the Beerline Trail. Hood, a nationally known landscape architect, engaged with the community and used that input in his design of the Lifeways Plan, an ambitious vision for this important community asset.


This event will also feature Darryl Johnson, executive director of Riverworks, as well as a local panel, including Sara Daleiden, who will discuss Black landscapes and why they are important for Milwaukee.
