The third annual Garrett Lecture on Urban Issues will be given on Thursday, Nov. 1, at 6 p.m. by Charles Jordan, director of parks and recreation in Portland, Ore. The lecture will take place at Evergreen House, 4545 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.
Jordan is nationally known for his advocacy of the multiple benefits of parks and the key role that they play in the life of city residents. He believes that parks are an integral part of our shared urban mission to reclaim neighborhood quality of life and renew our bonds of community.
Historically, recreation and urban planning issues were important to the Garrett family, the original owners of the historic Evergreen House. The Garrett Lecture on Urban Issues commemorates that interest..
Admission is $8 for Evergreen members and Johns Hopkins University affiliates, and $10 for the general public. A reception will follow. For information or to make reservations, call 410-516-0341. Visit Evergreen on the web at www.jhu.edu/historichouses.
