Learning to Love Nature in a Big City
Most people think that there’s little to no nature in major cities such as Los Angeles. Or that the nature there, is not much worth learning about. But Lila Higgins, an urban entomologist and citizen scientist, is here to prove them wrong. She contends that nature in large urban environments is actually surprising, beautiful, and definitely worth studying...and that knowing about it helps us to live better lives. She hopes to inspire us all to learn how to love it just a little bit more.
