Green-Wood Cemetery:  Sustainable Urban Green Space
Friday, May 24,  8:30-11:30 am  (Presenters: check your presentation schedule for conflicts.)
Leader: Ruth Rae

As cities around the world increase in density, cemeteries play a growing role as urban parks. Cemeteries are cultural and historical landscapes that provide nature for city residents. Green-Wood Cemetery—a national historic landmark—is expanding their public programming and botanical amenities, and increasing their role in environmental advocacy. This workshop explores the historical and sustainable use of cemeteries as urban green space.  Participants will examine changes in the meanings of cemeteries as green space, and sustainable landscape management practices and techniques. Fee includes MTA card.

Tickets are non-refundable.
