Urban Environmental Stewardship
Ordinary people take a variety of actions to try to help nature survive and thrive, especially in built-up areas – for example, planting trees, pulling weeds, and hanging bird houses. But environmental stewardship takes many forms and may also include things like planting community gardens, teaching kids about nature, and organizing park clean-up events.
We study urban natural resource stewardship in order to understand the efforts people are making to help their local environments and why.
