Jens Jensen The Living Green   Narrated by Jens Jensen's great-granddaughter, Jensen Wheeler Wolfe, the multi-award winning documentary JENS JENSEN THE LIVING GREEN profiles the unsung pioneering landscape architect who became one of America's most influential urban designers and early conservationists - shaping the Midwest's physical and cultural landscape in an enduring way. Danish-born Jensen rose from immigrant street sweeper in the 1880s to "dean of American landscape architects," as The New York Times called him upon his death in 1951. When Jensen arrived in Chicago in 1885, it was one of the fastest growing cities in human history, and one of the least livable, especially for the working poor. D

After three years of answering their questions while on the job, the forester decided to teach them in a more formal setting and established the first forestry school in the United States.G
