Handel Lecture: Dreams and Nightmares

Distinguished Lecturer in Urban Ecology

"The Dreams and Nightmares of Restoring Urban Landscapes"

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

Steven N. Handel, Ph.D.
Professor, Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources

Research interests include the restoration of native habitats, adding sustainable ecological services, biodiversity, and public amenities to our landscape. This work can add environmental, social, and economic renewal to our cities. Many urban environments, from New York to California to abroad, are degraded but can be restored by modern ecological science.

Dr. Handel has worked on the ecological restoration of major urban areas, including the Fresh Kills landfill and new Brooklyn Bridge Park in NYC, the landscape for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, and currently, the new Orange County Great Park in Irvine, CA.
