Nature and the City: What Good is Urban Conservation?

Event Date: 
April 16, 2012

From New York's High Line to the Los Angeles River, there's a new energy across the United States about recapturing nature in cities. But can these efforts be about more than building quality of life for urban residents? Can they actually rebuild biodiversity as well (not to mention support for conservation)? Leading scientists, authors and urban conservationists discuss the science behind and promise for today’s urban conservation efforts.
