Regeneration Park: Developing Green Infrastructure and Creating a Safe Space for Environmental Stewardship

Student: April Thomas

This goal of this project was to assist the Duval Soil and Water Conservation District in their development of Regeneration Park. Regeneration Park is a grant-funded park located in Jacksonville’s west side urban core along the S-line trail. It will eventually encompass native biodiversity, as well as other herbs and fruits to benefit the local community. The park’s main goal is to become a place to curate environmental stewards from the local community, and to give back to underrepresented communities in this area of Jacksonville.
