A panel of experts from Kansas and Missouri discusses ongoing efforts to develop MetroGreen—a system of nature areas, greenways, and trails—with an emphasis on the more than 200 miles that have already been constructed and are open to the public. Once completed, the network will stretch 1,144 miles.

The panel includes Mark McHenry, Bill Maasen, and Brian Nowotny, directors of the Kansas City, Johnson County, and Platte County parks and recreation departments, along with the co-authors of Hiking Kansas City Richard Ballentine and William Eddy. The discussion will be moderated by the Mid-America Regional Council’s Tom Jacobs.

Co-sponsored by Mid-America Regional Council.
