Fast forward eight years, and now I'm living and working in L.A.. When I talk to people about nature in this city, they fall into one of two types. Those that believe there's no nature worth seeing here, and those that give me tips for new places to visit. There's so much nature in L.A., and I'd contend there's lot of nature worth seeing. It might not always be right there in front of your nose, you actually have to go out and find it. That for me is the most exciting part, and the reason why I'm so excited about the North Campus project. We'll have an urban wilderness, right smack-bang in the heart of the city, a place to explore, a place to find out what's living under our noses, and a place to see how nature in our city changes over time.
