Jenny Price, visiting professor at the Princeton Environmental Institute, is speaking at the DR Greenway's Johnson Education Center this Wednesday, Nov. 4, 6:30-8:30. The topic is
"LA Has a River?: Reviving America's Most Famous Forgotten Waterway".
The river is completely lined with concrete, and yet there have been efforts to restore habitat within this massive concrete channel. Art plays a role in bringing life and people back to what was intended to be a giant ditch. Jenny lived in California for many years and was actively involved in the project.
Jenny has also organized a panel discussion on art's connection to nature, on Thursday, Nov. 13, 4:30 - 6 at Guyot Hall, Rm 10, entitled "What Arts are Good For". The most recent panel, on "What Literature is Good For", was excellent.
