Urban Ecology: The Intersection Between Humans and Nature in Cities
Talking about how humans think and make decisions in the context of an urban natural environment. We will explore Patrick’s unique project to create ecological signage along the waterway with students in his Urban Ecology Class that use the arts to teach science. We will also explore ways the tools of social science blend together with the expertise and knowledge of natural sciences to transform how we think about our natural world? Can transdisciplinary collaboration lead to new and more effective solutions to the problems facing our watersheds?
