Mark Lakeman

Join us September 19 for the kick-off of our 2017-2018 Nature Night Speaker Series with Mark Lakeman of The City Repair Project and Communitecture, Inc.

Have you ever entered into a neighborhood and been amazed by a community garden, beautiful street painting, or pollinator habitat? Have you ever wondered how these spaces connect people and animals to a place; how they bridge gaps between wildlife and humans? Join Audubon Society of Portland for an exciting talk with Mark Lakeman of The City Repair Project about a vision to activate our urban landscape; creating communion among each other, nature, and wildlife.

Mark Lakeman is the co-founder of The City Repair Project and Communitecture, Inc., both projects using sustainable planning and architecture to stimulate connections with our landscape and neighborhoods. In his talk, he will pose the question: “Are we serious about becoming a resilient, enduring culture based on respect, preservation, and cultivation of restored ecological systems?” He will empower you with a vision of our future in which people and wildlife live in urban harmony. Using his knowledge of our Roman colonial infrastructure, Mark will lead us on a journey of the importance of diversity not only in our biosphere but in how we transform our communities into places that respect and sustain both people and nature. 

Pre-register for any or all of our 2017/2018 Nature Nights.
