The past couple weeks, the Oakland Parks, Recreation, and Youth Development Department (OPRYD) has been working to hire and contract with a facilitator to lead the process for the renewed Rotary Nature Center. An individual has been selected.
I don’t have the name of the individual on hand. Today’s update from OPYRD said: “little to report this week… still in the process of finalizing our contract with a facilitator.” They are also (in conjunction with some of our allies) “planning to visit a few nature sites in the area.”
This was a suggestion that came out of a meeting organized this past week at the Lake Chalet. The meeting was an ad hoc one meant to keep people talking and thinking on our hopes and dreams for the center. We were happy to have a couple representatives from the city attend, from OPRYD and Councilmember MacElhaney’s office.
