Civic Ecology: Healing and Growing in Community

March 3, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$10

Marianne E. Krasny, PhD, Professor, Department of Natural Resources, and Director, Civic Ecology Lab, Cornell University

1 Session: Thursday, March 3, 7:00–8:30pm

Community gardening and forestry, participatory watershed restoration…in communities around the world there is a growing phenomenon. People are coming together to rebuild and restore local environments affected by crisis, disaster, or neglect. In New Orleans after Katrina, in New York after Sandy, in Soweto after apartheid, and in any number of postindustrial, depopulated cities, people work together to restore nature, renew communities, and to heal themselves. Marianne Krasny will share stories of this emerging grassroots environmental stewardship, arguing that humans’ innate love of nature and attachment to place compels them to restore nature and places that are threatened, destroyed, or lost.

Fee $10 Register at my.arboretum.harvard.edu or call 617-384-5277.

Presented jointly by the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, Mass Audubon’s Boston Nature Center, and the Emerald Necklace Conservancy
