Nurturing Nature to Restore Ecosystems

Franklin Park Zoo

Pre-Registration Required
Event is included with general Zoo admission

During this insightful talk, Jim Laurie of Bio4Climate will discuss how nurturing nature can restore the planet’s ecosystems. He focuses on organisms such as fungi, beaver, mycorrhizal fungi, shellfish, dung beetles, and other incredible species that are needed in order to reverse global warming.

Laurie, a restoration ecologist, will discuss Cashes Ledge and other ecosystems with abundant biodiversity, including ones that have been brought back from degraded states by land management practices that restored water and biodiversity.

Laurie has spoken about Holistic Management at Harvard, MIT, Tufts, the Stockholm Environment Institute, at meetings of the Massachusetts Climate Action Network (MCAN) and Northeast Organic Farmers Association (NOFA), and has been instrumental in spreading the message in New England. 

Offered in partnership with the Boston Food Forest Coalition, this spring series of workshops and talks focus on urban sustainability and permaculture principles. Workshops are designed to provide participants with hands-on opportunities to put their newly acquired knowledge into practice.
