Who Cares for NYC’s Forest: A Story of Research, Community, and Inspiration

The first in a two-part Science of the Living City event series, organized by the NYC Urban Field Station in partnership with the J.M. Kaplan Fund.

These events will raise awareness of our forested natural areas, the stewards who help manage them, and two new cutting edge tools that have had and will continue to have impacts on the way we think about, care for, and relate to our city’s forest.

Featuring a panel that includes Sarah Charlop-Powers, Executive Director of the Natural Areas Conservancy, the event will focus on two environmental stories in NYC. The first is the Natural Areas Conservancy’s and NYC Parks’ Forest Management Framework, the city’s first long-term action plan and road map for the care of its forested natural areas. At the same time, we will share the story of STEW-MAP, which illuminates all the hard working and many unsung stewards that take care of their local patch of forest.
