Liba Pejchar and Lindsay Ex are leading a Nature in the City graduate seminar (ECOL 592) at Colorado State University during spring 2015. The seminar provides a unique opportunity to collaborate with the City of Fort Collins to design and sustain urban open space in our community. Student's will be part of the innovative Nature in the City Project, which is developing a 25-year vision for how all residents in the city will be able to access high-quality, natural experiences within a 10-minute walk from where they live and work.
Students in the seminar will hail from diverse backgrounds to conduct the research and synthesis to propose design guidelines that are socially, ecologically, and economically sound.
