On Thursday, October 20, HCA joined the Marlborough Park Plan team to discuss Marlborough Park’s restoration with community members. The community workshop took place at The Borough and invited neighbors to discuss their thoughts and priorities for the future of the park. Participants heard from the team leaders at Hoxie Collective, The Marlborough Community Coalition, The Kansas City Parks & Recreation, SWT Designs, and Biohabitats.
Conversations focused on preserve ecological benefits, increasing access to the park, park safety and addressing the invasive species.

The next Renew the Blue volunteer workday is Saturday, November 12 at The Heartland Overlook Preserve. Join our team of enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers to remove trash and invasive bush honeysuckle from our green spaces and streams. Your work will directly impact the Blue River, a vital resource in Kansas City, making it healthier and resilient for future generations. Volunteers must be at least 16, and have a guardian sign a waiver if they are under 18. Sign up on the HCA website.
