African Americans in Conservation

When: Mondays-Fridays, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 28 2018

There’s still time to swing through the lobby of the City-County Building and check out the month-long exhibit “African Americans in Conservation.” Among the locals highlighted who helped to “preserve and protect their heritages and cultural identities” are Dorothy Richardson, who campaigned for better housing on the North Side, and Mary Haith Savage, who has transformed vacant lots into gardens. And don’t miss the artwork, including a paper mosaic (pictured), made by fifth-graders at Miller African-Centered Academy celebrating Umoja, or unity, and Pittsburgh’s iconic bridges. -Al Hoff
