Seminar: Connecting Conservation to Global and Local Sustainability
October 6, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Teatown’s Dr. Amy Karpati will kick off the Fall Sustainability Series with an introductory presentation entitled “Connecting Conservation to Global and Local Sustainability.” Dr. Karpati will talk about sustainability from a biological conservation perspective, the conservation issues we face at Teatown, and the importance of Teatown’s work within the context of regional sustainability.
Dr. Karpati’s role at Teatown is to oversee and integrate our science, stewardship, and education work. Amy holds a doctorate in Ecology & Evolution from Rutgers University and a master’s degree in Adolescent Education from Pace University. She worked for several years as a conservation biologist and environmental advocate in the New Jersey Pinelands, where she helped to protect the essential ecosystem services, species, and habitats of the region. Amy has also been an adjunct faculty member of Columbia University’s Masters in Sustainability Management program since 2012, where she teaches a course in urban ecology. Her research and education work has focused on biological conservation, ecological restoration of urban ecosystems, plant ecology, sustainability, and strengthening community connections to the natural landscape.
