"Habitat. How plants and animals and people co-exist on the earth. Eats, sleeps and breathes it. Experienced the expansive wildness of a New Mexico ranch. Lived the ideas of landscape architect Jens Jensen on an Indiana campus. Saw how the natural and the man-made can and must work together. For sustainability. For vibrancy. For healing."
