As sprawl continues to gobble up open space around our cities, many urban dwellers are losing a connection to the land. For Peter Forbes, that's a troubling trend. Forbes is co-director of the Center for Land and People at the Trust for Public Lands, a national organization based in California dedicated to land conservation. He was in Cleveland last week to speak his new book at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. It's called The Great Remembering. Forbes spoke with ideastream's Karen Schaefer about why we should care about the land and how we can think about land differently in our daily lives.
