The role of urban forests
What and where is nature? What gives you a sense of connection and belonging? Does land belong to us or do we belong to the land? Can we re-wild natural and community places? How can we deepen our connections to this place and each other?
Join Forterra NorthWest for a conversation with conservation and environmental leaders whose personal and organizational views to these questions are changing. Accept an invitation to explore inclusive ways of thinking about people and connections to nature.
Urban forests are diverse natural systems that support our long-term health and well-being. Healthy forests in our cities contribute to addressing longstanding disparities of environmental and social justice. Forterra CEO Michelle Connor leads a conversation, Evolving Views on People and Nature.
