Project Description

Our 2015 Urban Soil Summit Host, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, located in Exposition Park, near downtown Los Angeles, seeks to inspire wonder, discovery and responsibility for our natural and cultural worlds and empower the widest possible audience to enjoy, value and become stewards of the living Earth. The Museum believes that human beings are connected — to each other, to communities, to other species, and to the Earth.

As humans increasingly influence natural systems, it is critical that we understand these relationships. Therefore, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County has donated all facilities and resources we enjoy during this Summit in order to spark the necessary dialogue around urban soil and water security. Spend some time wandering in their beautiful gardens and be sure to thank anyone you see with an NHM nametag for their generosity and support.   Learn more about the Museum at:
