Think Science: Repopulating Native Areas

Mission Reach Expansion
Joey Palacios

San Antonio River, Mission reach.

For decades, American cities paved the way for population growth with more … pavement. But in recent years, planners have recognized the importance of native species in the ecosystem, leading to the restoration of rivers, creeks, and other areas toward a more natural state. The reintroduction of a species is the latest step in the effort to preserve plants, animals, birds, and insects that are endangered.
 
This Think Science event features representatives from the City of San Antonio and San Antonio River Authority talking about the process of restoration, and what’s in the future at the intersection of urban landscapes and natural areas. You'll also learn little about how your own land can benefit from native plants.
