The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy (BOPC) invites the public to join the Olmsted Community Alliance (OCA). The goals of the OCA are to enhance collaboration and awareness between BOPC, park neighbors and community partners; provide opportunities for community dialogue, feedback and input throughout the Olmsted parks; build representation from every Olmsted park district; and increase public knowledge of BOPC’s role and mission for Buffalo’s historic landscapes.

√ Jan. 19, 6-7:30 p.m., District 1: Riverside Park via Zoom – click here to register.
