The Chamber’s Ag & Natural Resources Committee began hosting “Lunchtime Conversations About Open Spaces” in January 2020. The committee held two sessions before putting the series on hold due to the pandemic. In 2022, the committee brought them back, and they have continued each year since.
During each session, the topic will be interactively explored with attendees with the focus on what is balanced use of our open space, and can we continue to balance that use into the future? Each session will also discuss the importance of open spaces to our community’s economy and culture now and into the future. Attendees are encouraged to join in with questions and discussion.
The 2024 series will focus on what role does outdoor recreation play in maintaining open space and how does it contribute to our vibrant community? Where are we now and where are we going with outdoor recreation? What are the challenges and how do we maintain what is developed?
The schedule for this year’s Lunchtime Conversations includes:
JAN. 23 MUNICIPAL PARKS & PATHWAYS
FEB. 27 COUNTY PARKS & TRAILS
MAR. 19 STATE & FEDERAL LANDS
APR. 23 PRIVATE LANDS
All discussions begin at 12 p.m. and are held at Luminous Brewhouse, 504 Broadway St. in Sheridan. All sessions are free to attend and open to everyone. No registration is necessary. Bring your lunch and your questions and comments to join the conversation.
