Camila runs down the plan for a wide range of events including a Black Market on June 26th, a showcase for black owned businesses in Western Pennsylvania, a Mellon Park cookout the weekend of June 18th, and Heritage Day June 20th at the Frick. There are always birds to see at the Environmental Center and a full summer of learning and walking abroad on the great green earth while absorbing and learning in Pittsburgh Parks.
