National Parks Service Centennial Series: Urban Public Land Issues

This panel will explore the future of urban public lands by asking questions which we do not have ready answers. What will climate change and inequality mean in 15 years? What is the ecological fate of Jamaica Bay? What will the changing economic picture in places like Oakland and San Francisco bring? What are the implications of changing demography? What do we do now to prepare for these future scenarios? Panelists will share their research and experience toward providing answers for both biophysical and social challenges facing future urban public lands.
