Smart Growth lecture series coming to Living on Earth radio

For a few years now, EPA and the Smart Growth Network have been sponsoring a regular series of terrific lectures on smart growth and related issues here in Washington, D.C. at the National Building Museum. They’ve had well-known authors, innovators and special guests from all over the country come to talk about different aspects of the built environment and how we grow. They’ve been recording the lectures and making audio available after the lecture, but it’s about to get much more accessible.

From an email we got this week:
