NYC¿s Natural and Urban Environment

This course explores the interrelationship between NYC's natural and urban environment with a focus on NYC's natural history: wetlands, forests, hills, meadows, bodies of water (streams, rivers, and bays) and beaches. Students will examine the environmental consequences of NYC's growth and transformation of the natural environment, initiatives to protect and restore natural areas, and the main features of a sustainable NYC in which our urban environment is in balance with nature.
