In a world where more people live in urban settings than rural communities, where do we find nature? Can we experience it only in those remote places untouched by humans? Or is nature all around us? Listening for the unexpected and seeing with fresh eyes can begin to blur the lines between city and nature and reveal the surprising world that surrounds us every day.
