Measure What Matters: Community Stewardship and Nature in Urban Parks

Hosted: mars 23, 2022

The rich ecosystems in our large urban parks not only make our cities more biodiverse and climate-resilient, but they also provide places for people to build connections to nature which are strongly linked to pro-environmental attitudes and well-being. 

Nature-based programming–from environmental stewardship to species monitoring– engages communities in the valuable work of caring for large green spaces to help them thrive. It’s a virtuous cycle that can simultaneously support the well-being of people and the planet.

How can we measure and amplify the impact stewardship and restoration have on the health of ecosystems and people in our large urban parks?

Join this first Cornerstone Parks talk to meet three experts who are evaluating the benefits of large urban parks and applying this research to secure more funding, attract partners and move the needle on large urban parks.
