Event Description:
Are you interested in learning more about how to care for our natural areas? The join the Stewardship Network's Huron Arbor cluster for an informal discussion on a monthly topic with volunteer and professional land stewards, plus others interested in nature. Free! For more information go to www.stewardshipnetwork.org. /> This month's topic: How can cities help save the planet's biodiversity?
By 2050, the amount of land surface on the planet dedicated to urban habitats is projected to grow 3-fold as 90% of humanity moves into cities. The proliferation of urban habitats will undoubtedly influence biodiversity- but there's no agreement on how. Some cities and their development practices are one of the primary contributors to biodiversity loss. Others say cities harbor more biodiversity than they are often given credit for, and that certain types of 'green' development practices can help save biodiversity. We will discuss the role of cities- big and small- in biodiversity loss, using Ann Arbor's past and present development practices as a warning, or exemplar, of the role cities play in conservation.
