Blight to Bright: Reimagining Vacant Land

Urban Conservation!

Dr. Mary Gardiner, Gardiner Lab, Department of Entomology, The Ohio State University, will host a field tour and workshop on August 19, 2019.  It will highlight the importance of vacant land as a habitat for insects and source of many important ecosystem services we derive from our landscape.  The workshop will be held at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.  The City of Cleveland, Ohio manages over 30,000 vacant lots in which to reimagine these greenspaces to promote conservation and community goals.
