Join the Department of Landscape Architecture for a lecture featuring Charles A. Flink, II, FASLA, of Alta Planning + Design and Greenways, Inc., on April 15 at 6 PM in Burns Auditorium.

Charles will discuss his new book, The Greenway Imperative: Connecting Communities & Landscapes for a Sustainable Future.

In this eye-opening journey through some of America’s most innovative landscape architecture projects, Charles Flink shows why we urgently need greenways. A leading authority in greenway planning, design, and development, Flink presents inspiring examples of communities that have come together to build permanent spaces for the life-sustaining power of nature.

The Greenway Imperative reveals the stories behind a variety of multiuse natural corridors, taking readers to Grand Canyon National Park, suburban North Carolina, the banks of the Miami River, and many other settings. Flink, who was closely involved with each of the projects in this book during his 35-year career, introduces the people who jumpstarted these initiatives and the challenges they overcame in achieving them.

This event is in collaboration with the NC State Libraries.
