In this time of the global pandemic, the restorative properties that green spaces have on the body and the mind are being increasingly felt by all of us. How do we manage these landscapes to maximize their benefits, both for us and for the environment? Embracing Green-Wood’s legacy as a pioneering green space for the people, we have partnered with Cornell University on a research initiative that seeks to preserve our 478-acre landscape and leverage it as an asset in the fight against climate change. Join Dr. Frank Rossi from Cornell University School of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Green-Wood’s Director of Horticulture Joseph Charap for a presentation and conversation about this exciting research collaboration and its implications for the management of green spaces throughout the urban environment.

We’d love to continue to provide programming like this during the COVID crisis. Please support our work with a contribution of any size.

Free, RSVP required. This conversation is part of our new series of virtual programs about the horticulture and wildlife of Green-Wood, Zooming in on Nature.

A Zoom link will be emailed to you the day of the program, please arrive early to test your connection.
