Event Description

Charles Flink, Professor of the Practice in Landscape Architecture, discusses why we urgently need greenways. Using examples from his new book, The Greenway Imperative, Flink presents inspiring examples of communities that have come together to build permanent spaces for the life-sustaining power of nature. This presentation is co-presented by the College of Design and the NC State University Libraries.

The Special Collections Research Center at NC State University Libraries collects materials relating to greenways in the United States, including the Greenways Incorporated Records and Charles A. Flink Papers. You can also watch a video oral history (with a text transcription) of Chuck Flink here.
