Advancing Equity in Urban Greenspace
June 21 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Smithsonian Environmental Research Center presents its next Earth Optimism webinar, featuring Atiya Wells, founder of the nonprofit Backyard Basecamp in Baltimore City.
She will highlight the importance of equity in landscape design, creation and community cultivation. With their BLISS Meadows project, Backyard Basecamp has reclaimed 10 acres of vacant land in their neighborhood to be used for environmental education and community greenspace, and to help communities of color reconnect with nature.
