Urban Ecology Lecture Series

Urban Ecology Lecture Series

Tuesday March 24 6:30PM-8PM continues our exploration of "Living Things in an Urban Ecosystem" with a lively panel discussion on Oysters: Limits and Possibilities. Moderated by Gena Wirth of SCAPE Landscape Architecture, our panelists will dive into the role oysters can and do play in restoration and if, perhaps more importantly, they truly live up to their reputation as marine system restorers.
