Restoring an Urban Watershed: Ecology, Equity, and Design
New Directions in EcoPlanning Annual Lecture
Lecture by Anne Whiston Spirn
Award-winning author, photographer, and professor of landscape architecture and planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Anne Whiston Spirn focuses on the story of Mill Creek's restoration as a model for uniting science, design, and community engagement to address social and environmental problems. Spirn discusses how "landscape literacy" is just as critical to those solutions as verbal literacy was to the American Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s.
