The Herring Run/ Morgan Greenway trail project is about to start and this is your chance to be a part of it. The project is planning to take an old railway path and turn it into a beautiful trail where citizens can walk, run, or bike with ease. On Thursday September 27th Morgan State University will hold an inaugural lecture to discuss and plan the project at the Center for the Built Environment and Infrastructure Studies (CBEIS Building).
Morgan State University faculty, staff, and students will work together with the community to achieve this goal. While the majority of the help will come from the Morgan State University community, members of the larger community are welcome and encouraged to join.
There are currently two academic classes which will follow the project closely and the university urges community residents to join the students at the classes. The first class, LAAR 550 Landscape Architecture Studio V: Urban Design, will meet on Mondays and Thursdays from 6 pm–9:50 pm, will discuss the design of the landscape. The second class, Critical Thinking in the Built Environment ENST 738: Seminars in Built Environment Studies, will meet on Wednesdays from 1 pm – 3:50 pm to review “particular subject areas of the built environment” including topics such as “Theories of Architecture, Ecology and Design, Culture and Design, and Open Space Planning and Design” among others.
