The Harvard Museum of Natural History presents its annual New Directions in EcoPlanning Lecture. The Mill Creek neighborhood of West Philadelphia once epitomized the failures of 20th-century urban policies and development, resulting in an economically depressed, racially-segregated community plagued with vacant land, subsiding ground, and flooded basements on the buried floodplain of the creek. Anne Whiston Spirn, lauded by the Boston Globe as an "urban visionary" will focus on the story of Mill Creek's restoration as a model for uniting science, design, and community engagement to address social and environmental problems. Free and open to the public. (HMNHpr)
