Local resettlement agencies have partnered with Olmsted Parks Conservancy to provide participants with recommended walking routes through many of the Conversancy’s beautiful and historic parks.
Partner agencies encourage walk participants to take advantage of Buffalo’s beautiful park system while maintaining safe and proper social distancing measures. “In a time when healthy and safety precautions require us to maintain physical distance from others in our community, our hope is that this event – this sharing of stories – can help build bonds of connection and community with our neighbors
from all over the world” concludes Ms. Hassett.
