Last week, Darla Moore announced the creation of the Charleston Parks Conservancy. Their main goal will be to improve the 120 city parks and green spaces, as well as encourage community stewardship in the effort. Green spaces are good spaces, and  important for urban residents who seek to enjoy what we are all trying so hard to protect. This is great news!

I’m sure we’ll all be hearing a lot more from this organization in the near future. In the mean time, check out CPC’s Facebook page for the details. Here is a great overview from their website:

The Charleston Parks Conservancy is a new organization with a timeless goal. With our roots in history and our eyes on the future, we will work to provide for our parks the same level of respect and preservation that we already give our great city. As this organization comes to life in the coming months, you can join with us as we connect people to people, people to the past, and people to their parks.

I really like the sound of their Park Angels program, which is the volunteer wing of the nonprofit. This is great opportunity for city residents to get involved in something from the start, and begin making an impact immediately. The plan is to fill 5 Lead Angel positions to coordinate efforts around the city. The deadline to submit your application is July 11th, so register online if you are interested.
