Subject: Report on Open Space Preservation Workshop in Eagan (May 17, 2003)
Dear Friends of Patrick Eagan Park,
Despite Saturday's near perfect weather, our Workshop on Preserving Open Space and hike that followed still managed to attract nearly three dozen attendees.
Sponsored jointly by Friends of Patrick Eagan Park and the Sierra Club's North Star Chapter, the workshop was bolstered by seven different speakers.
The presentations delivered and materials distributed were extremely useful.
In addition, attendees had the opportunity to meet and converse with both Patrick McCarthy (early in the workshop) and Tony & Cheryl Caponi (mid-way through the hike). Tony shared a memorable account of how he began the Art Park---over 50 years ago!---and his current vision for the Park and Learning Center.
We hope to post photos and some of the materials from the workshop on our Website before long.
We'd like to thank everyone who had a hand in making the workshop a success.
Thanks again for your support during our month-long outreach program!
