The Power of Urban Nature: Why Better Urban Ecosystems Create Better Lives
Start Date 11/29/2017
End Date 11/29/2017
Description Our cities need natural places and thriving vegetation more than ever before -- plants are essential to clean our air and water, provide a balance to our stressful lives, and increase biodiversity and habitat. However, urban landscapes challenge plant health with a difficult pallet of harsh site conditions and traditional planting methods. Join us as we explore how you can improve the health, beauty, diversity, and resilience of your urban neighborhood by applying plant community-based planting and management techniques. Let’s explore the wealth of native species that are naturally adapted to urban conditions and explore creative ways to increase biodiversity and life quality in our cities.
