Global Parking Day with Juliet Fromholt, NPR Commentator Julie Zickefoose, Emily McCord with Politics Ohio, and Miami Valley StoryCorps. This week Dayton joined cities around the world in celebrating Parking Day. It's a grassroots movement that transforms metered parking spots into mini green spaces for one day only.

She has a story about a trip she took into the woods not far from here - with a group of schoolkids. Julie's full commentary and a slide show are available here.
