A recognition message from a Quarry Hill visitor

 Good Morning!

I walk in Quarry Hill Park every day and have been doing Habitat Restoration there since 2013.
I am so impressed with the work accomplished by the Diversity Council teams. 
They cleared an amazing amount of buckthorn in a short time.
I am forwarding this msg and poster from the area Conservation Corps because this experience in Nature
may have sparked an interest in a potential career they had not thought about.
On a volunteer level, Quarry Hill Nature Center has a group called Weed Warriors who focus on removing
invasive species like Garlic Mustard and Buckthorn. The season is coming to an end but starts up again in
April.  Contact Jill Danielsen at Quarry Hill Nature Center in 2021 if individuals or small groups want to volunteer
in the park. 
It was a pleasure to meet and greet some of the team members in passing.
Thanks for all you do,
TD

 Diversity Council Coordination

Diversity Council is coordinating an ask to the City of Rochester for Conservation Funds to employ individuals in September, October and November. we are taking this step to ensure that smaller organizations in the community can participate and so we are not all competing against one another for these funds.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
