Lunch and Learn: Urban Greenspace and Wildlife Management with Evan Mallen
From the Amazon to Atlanta, increasing urbanization and resource extraction continue to threaten natural habitats and ecological processes. However, new environmental planning strategies can help mitigate these trends even in the densest urban environments. In this talk, you’ll learn about the ecological impacts of habitat fragmentation, and how you can apply wildlife corridor and greenspace design strategies to protect wildlife. This event is free with registration!
