The guest speaker this evening will be Eva-Maria Simms, Ph.D., psychology department professor and director of psychology graduate studies at Duquesne University, who will introduce the evening's topic, “The Invisibility of Nature: Garbage and Play-Forts in Urban Nature Spaces.”
The meeting will be held at the Center for Sustainable Landscapes classroom at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens where, over delicious small-plate food and a happy-hour cash bar, a discipline or behavior will be identified and discussed among the participants in the interest of sharing ideas and identifying opportunities.
Directions and Parking: This meeting will take place in the Center for Sustainable Landscapes (CSL) Classroom which is located on the facility’s first floor.

Guest parking spaces are available on your left as you approach the CSL.
