Through his 17 years of leadership with the Trust for Public Land, Rick Wood assisted the city of Chattanooga, TN, through continuous development and implementation of a nationally recognized greenway and parks plan.
Chattanooga remarkably transformed from one of the dirtiest cities in America, to landing the top spot twice as Outdoor Magazine’s Best Town Ever. The city’s greenways and parks have become a core part of Chattanooga’s culture, a cornerstone to its economic renaissance.
As the former head of The Trust for Public Land, Rick is proud to have played an important role in what will impact generations to come in Chattanooga. Now, he’s ready to share his experiences and lessons with you...shortening your timelines, helping you stretch your budgets, and increasing the likelihood of success in your parks and greenways programs.
