Washington, DC (October 14, 2004)- Tim Beatley’s work focuses on creating more sustainable urban environments.

His contributions help to illuminate the critical role that creating quality human habitat plays in enhancing quality natural habitats. Tim’s books include Native to Nowhere, The Ecology of Place, Ethical Land Use, and Green Urbanism.
