River Stewards hosting online river sign visioning event Wednesday

By Mark Gokavi

The 2021 River Stewards senior cohort plans to create and place educational and interpretive signage along the Great Miami River about river and water quality; habitat and species; ways to recreate and safely enjoy the river; and sense of place and stewardship.

To help decide what signs should be installed, they invite University of Dayton students, staff and faculty to join them for a visioning event from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28, via this Zoom link. The drop-in event will include a brief overview at 6 p.m. and move into breakout rooms.

A release from the River Stewards said the capstone community project aims to “foster collaboration between the UD campus and the surrounding community through our shared riverfront.”

Organizers hope to “tell the river’s story, and to connect University of Dayton students and Dayton community members in uniting around this process … (by) encouraging students, neighborhood residents and all users of the trail to interact with the river and reflect on its unifying capabilities.”

Anyone with questions or to RSVP are invited to email Shannon Stanforth.
