Our volunteers come from a range of backgrounds. If you want to support NDC’s work and have experience in the below disciplines (or something related), we’d love to collaborate.
Are you interested in how creative placemaking, community development, and sustainable low impact design intersect? This project is for you! A one mile stretch of Paint Branch, from Metzerott Road to Baltimore Avenue in College Park, has the unique opportunity to be rethought for the future. The design solution for this project will bring residents, students, and trail users together and provide them places to linger and stay as well as safe ways to travel through the area. Creative and lighthearted engagement will seek to yield ideas for public art, gathering spaces, informative signs, temporary or ‘pop up’ commercial installations, and programming to bring residents and students to the trail.
Landscape architects with experience in low impact development and trail design are encouraged to apply for this project. Firms are welcome! With questions or for more information, please email Allie O'Neill, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contee-Parago Triangle Park serves as an entry point to the Bolton Hill neighborhood and is one of the first park spaces in Baltimore to commemorate two of its African American residents, William Gailes Contee and Edward Wilson Parago. The Bolton Hill Community Association is organizing efforts for a major park renovation to be completed by the 50th anniversary of the park's establishment, in May 2021. Join us in providing updated park designs for this exciting anniversary celebration!
For this project, we are looking for landscape architects in Baltimore with an interest and experience in park design, sustainable landscaping, and neighborhood development.
