MillionTreesNYC Symposium Reaches New Green Heights; New York, NY

MillionTreesNYC Symposium Reaches New Green Heights > NYRP > NYRP Today:
On March 5 and 6, MillionTreesNYC’s second research symposium – titled MillionTreesNYC, Green Infrastructure and Urban Ecology – brought the brightest green minds together in an effort to enhance urban forestry projects nation-wide. Held at The New School, the conference provided a forum where more than 200 scientists, professors and students had the opportunity to discuss the latest developments on the socio-ecology of urban landscapes, green infrastructure and public health.

Co-produced by the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, New York Restoration Project (NYRP) and the United States Forest Service, this year’s MillionTreesNYC research symposium expanded on knowledge gathered from the spring 2009 workshop – MillionTreesNYC, Green Infrastructure and Urban Ecology: Building a Research Agenda, which was the first step in a broader process of integration among disciplines, researchers and practitioners working to understand and improve New York City’s environment and green infrastructure.
