Environmental event of interest in October

An Ecological History of New York

On October 27th, Urban Green Council and The New York Academy of Sciences presents Dr. Eric W. Sanderson, author of Mannahatta: A Natural History of New York City and Charles C. Mann, author of 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus, for a moderated discussion on the landscape of New York City prior to European settlement. The authors will open with a short presentation and lead into a broad ranging discussion of the human and environmental history of our region, including the import of this knowledge on the sustainable use of our region’s resources.

Drinks will be available following the discussion and both books will be available for sale. Urban Green and NYAS Members attend for free. If you're not an Urban Green member, JOIN today. Tickets and details here.
