Alive at Green-Wood is a project developed by Green-Wood Cemetery to explore the natural heritage of our place. As part of a network of green spaces in an urban environment, Green-Wood takes on new meaning as we begin to understand the role we play in the health of our neighborhood, the ecology of urban green spaces and the future of our city.

We invite you to listen to the reflections of individuals who have been involved in studying our rich cultural and natural history and shaping the future of our place.
