AF Inspiration: “In the face of climate change and increasing urban populations, ensuring that city dwellers connect with nature near them has never been more important. At American Forests, I’m thrilled to focus on improving equitable access to quality urban tree canopy, as well as access to the careers growing, maintaining and reusing that canopy.”
