'Landscapes of Resilience' to study how people use nature as a source of recovery
Date:5/22/2013

NEW YORK CITY, May 22, 2013 U.S. Forest Service scientists are part of "Landscapes of Resilience", a multi-disciplinary team that, with funding from the TKF Foundation, will examine how collaborative planning and stewardship of open spaces help communities and individuals recover from tragedy.

The TKF Foundation announced today that Landscapes of Resilience is one of six projects selected for grant funding. In addition to research on the role of open spaces and sacred spaces in recovery and resiliency, the 3-year, $585,000 grant will contribute to the creation of sites in Joplin, Mo., and New York City.

"We are deeply honored to be part of the Landscapes of Resilience team, and so honored that this project was selected by the TKF Foundation," said Michael T. Rains, Director of the Northern Research Station. "Trees and natural resource stewardship can be powerful forces in community resilience. This research will help us better understand how relationships with nature promote recovery."

Originally, researchers proposed to study the role of open spaces in recovery from the 2011 Joplin tornado that killed 161 people and damaged much of the city's built environment and urban forest. After Superstorm Sandy struck New York City and the surrounding area in October 2012, killing 72 people and causing extensive damage, researchers broadened the project to examine differences and similarities in community recovery across these two sites and throughout different time periods, from the immediate response to 1-3 years later.

In New York City, researchers will document the creation, restoration, and transformation of open spaces in post-Sandy affected areas. Working with TILL, a landscape architecture firm based in Newark, N.J., the Landscapes of Resilience team will provide design expertise and assistance in helping to select an appropriate site and will work with community residents to create an enhanced open space/sacred place.
