John Richardson

  • Program Manager

Join us for Sustainable Cities Network’s GI March meeting which will include a presentation from John Richardson of Prescription Parks and Trails (Parks Rx).

Park Rx aims to improve the physical and mental health of individuals and communities. Its assists and encourages people to utilize parks, trails, and open spaces through community walking events, ranger-led programs, guided hikes, and simply getting out in nature. This program gives healthcare providers a new set of tools to inspire patients to take proactive steps to improve their health and well-being. A partnership between the BEYOND Foundation and Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management, this Park Rx project kicked off in 2017 in Tucson and hopes to expand to other Arizona communities.

Speaker John Richardson is the Urban and Community Forestry and Forest Health Program Manager with the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management. He is a Northern Arizona University - School of Forestry graduate, as well as a certified Arborist, and Qualified Tree Risk Assessor.

Time will be allotted for communities to pose green infrastructure-related questions/challenges in need of input and assistance.
