We’d like to introduce ourselves…
John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge partnered with Audubon Pennsylvania and reached out to Kim Douglas and the Landscape Architecture Department at Jefferson University for their help in designs based on community feedback.
Kim Douglas and groups of 2nd, 3rd & 4th year students are working Eastwick for the Fall 2020 semester. These three studios are led by Kim Douglas and Matthew Tucker, both landscape architecture faculty at Jefferson. Previously, Kim has done extensive work within the Kingsessing community and developed Park in a Truck, a green and low-barriers initiative for neighborhoods to design and build their own park.
The team at John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge includes Lamar Gore, refuge manager, and Carmelita Rosner, community engagement specialist. As refuge manager, Lamar has prioritized building a deeper connection between the refuge and surrounding communities. Carmelita, as community engagement specialist, is an extension of that commitment.
Let’s make something together.
