NATURE AMNESIA & URBAN TREES IN AMERICA @ The Early Bird
Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 1 PM – 1:50 PM
If a child does not play in a forest with their parents, will either of them notice when it is gone?
As the landscape around us changes and generations of Americans become further
disconnected with the natural world, generational amnesia can develop in American society
that can change collective expectations of natural resource management.
Urban trees can bridge the gap between a rapidly urbanized and digitized society and the natural
world. One tree can make a difference and the urban forest may reverse the amnesia.
