Description

Promoting observation, discovery, and wonder, this take-along nature guide explores an overlooked yet fascinating environment: the city. Arguing that there is no better - or more convenient - place to find prime examples of plant and animal adaptations, see the impact of humans on the environment, and understand the importance of sustainable lifestyles, this book provides activities, artwork, and stories, that explore the world of nature in human-built surroundings. Sidebars supply definitions and pronunciations of new words and concepts, important plants of the urban landscape are detailed, and the most famous hawk in North America even makes an appearance. City dwellers will be astounded by the wealth of nature in their neighborhoods as they explore the plants and animals right under their noses.
