King County hosts a workshop in Kent this fall to share information about grant opportunities for creating parks and open spaces, especially in communities that have historically been underserved with open space investments.

The meeting is from 6 to 8 p.m.Tuesday, Nov. 19 at the Kent Commons Community Center, Mount Rainier Room, 220 Fourth Ave. S. It will feature presentations about three funding sources: King County Conservation Futures, King County Parks Levy, and the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office.

The meeting agenda will include time to share ideas about open space needs in communities and brainstorm how communities, eligible nonprofits and cities can collaborate to apply for grants.

Please find the workshop announcement at kingcounty.gov/cft.

Local vendors will provide free food, children are welcome, and there is free parking available at all sites.
