Hi there. My name is Traci Paris and I’m a reader, writer, and amateur naturalist living in Brooklyn, NY.

Slow Nature Fast City is my love letter to the place where I discovered the natural world – New York City. It’s a record of experiments in nature observation, a compendium of places to explore, and a reason to read more deeply.


Hi, I’m Traci

I’ve made my living thinking about, designing for, being enraptured by, and feeling shackled to the glowing screen. Slow Nature Fast City is a response and reminder –  don’t forget to go outside today and see what you can find there.

Here’s an interview where I describe how I began to notice nature after moving to NYC. This film was generously created by Nitin Das from healingforest.org
