Park Stewardship Assistant
Edelweiss Cardenas joined the Fairmount Park Conservancy in August 2018 as Park Stewardship Assistant. In this role Edelweiss collaborates on developing creative strategies to build the capacity of the Park Friends Network (PFN) so they can be active and effective participants in community development efforts, city planning processes, and the execution of capital projects. With a Bachelors in Fine Arts, Edelweiss has produced commissioned art pieces, worked as Video Production Specialist at Squarespace (New York), and served as Membership Coordinator at the Philadelphia Art Alliance. Edelweiss is excited to bring together her passion for the outdoors, the arts, and community into her role as Park Stewardship Assistant and can’t wait to meet all of the Friends groups!
Edelweiss moved to Philadelphia two years ago and continues to discover new and wonderful places in the city. In her spare time you can find her running on the Schuylkill River Trail, signing up for races, visiting museums, and enjoying her West Philly neighborhood.
