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

Joplin include designing and building a butterfly garden and overlook in Cunningham Park, which was devastated in the tornado.

The TKF Foundation is pleased to include Landscapes of Resilience in this collection of studies, which treats human health and the environment as an integrated whole. "Located across the United States, the projects will address the challenges of local populations by creating opportunities for recovery, restoration and renewal, and contribute rigorous research that confirms the benefits of nature experience in urban settings," said Tom Stoner, President and Co-Founder of TKF Foundation.

Landscapes of Resilience team members reflect a broad spectrum of skills. NRS scientists contribute expertise in planning, geography, and natural resource management, and partners include researchers at the civic ecology lab at Cornell University; architects, designers, and psychologists at Drury University in Missouri; the city of Joplin; and landscape architects from TILL in New York City.
