The Bronx is Blossoming

Who has access to nature? Who decides?

In the summer of 2018, CUP, in collaboration with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), partnered with Teaching Artist Hugo Rojas and public high school students from around the South Bronx to investigate these questions.

Students photographed the neighborhood, created stop-motion animations, stenciled the area with spray chalk. They conducted community surveys, interviewed key stakeholders, and used WCS's to create digital renderings of what nature in the Bronx could look like in the future. The team used design and art to break down the information they gathered and teamed up with designer Kevin Cadena to create this website to teach others what they learned and share their visions for nature in the South Bronx!
