Lecture | Kathleen L. Wolf, Ph.D., The Nature of Water in Cities: A Cascade of Benefits

Friday, Oct. 26, 2018 • 7:00 pm
Adults, Family, Members, Seniors

Green infrastructure innovations help us to re-imagine water management in communities, moving from sanitary to sustainable systems. The 'reveal' of water provides the spaces for people to re-engage with nature, the source of many benefits. Dr. Kathleen Wolf, of the University of Washington in Seattle, will share an overview of the research about nearby nature experiences and human health, focusing on mental health and function. Learn how green spaces just outside our doors encourages creativity, stress reduction, and productivity. This event is made possible by the City of Toledo Urban Forestry Commission and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry.
