2013 Programs: Urban Natural Areas
Why do we value urban natural areas? Are they only suited for passive recreation or can they be part of a broader conservation strategy? Over the course of 2013, we will address these questions and more, discussing both the challenges and opportunities that are unique to urban natural areas. In particular, we will focus on the unique benefits they provide to humanity and how they serve as a useful tool for introducing people to the value of nature. We will accomplish this by highlighting some of the Kalamazoo-area gems, and sharing our excitement for the plants and the communities they form.
