In partnership with:
Date and time
Friday, January 26, 2024
Live stream starts at 12:00pm

Stacey Beuttell, Senior Director of Mass Audubon’s Nature in the City, discusses what greenspaces are, why they are important to our cities, and how we can create access to nature that is inclusive and equitable for all.

Mass Audubon's Nature in the City program pictures a city where all residents, regardless of race, income, ability, spoken language or lived experience, can enjoy green spaces and feel welcomed.

By growing the number of urban greenspaces and improving their quality, the Nature in the City program provides opportunities for nature-based programming and builds grassroots advocacy for policy changes that regard nature as a core community health asset. 

This event will be hosted and moderated by the NOVA's Director of Education, Ralph Bouquet.

This event is presented with support from Liberty Mutual Insurance.

The event is in partnership with:
