New Directions in EcoPlanning Annual Lecture
Designing the Urban Ark: Biodiversity and the Future of Cities

Lecture by Kristina Hill
Wednesday, March 18, 6:00 pm

Can future cities support both biodiversity and healthy human populations? How will climate change alter the context for humans? relationships with other species? Kristina Hill, Assistant Professor and Director of Landscape Architecture at the University of Virginia, will present evidence of urban growth in the Pacific Northwest and urban shrinkage in the Great Lakes region that suggests a positive solution to these challenging questions. Dr. Hill will outline a vision for biodiversity and urban planning based on human self-interest, development conditions, climate change, and lessons learned in other regions of the United States. Free and open to the public in the Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street.

The lecture series, New Directions in EcoPlanning, is presented by the Harvard Museum of Natural History and supported by a generous gift from Michael Dyett (AB ?68, MRP ?72) and Heidi Richardson. For more information see the Press Release.
