Ecological Landscape Symposium



New Directions in the American Landscape:

25th Anniversary Program

Assessing and Reassessing Ecological Design

Thursday and Friday, January 9 & 10, 2014 at Connecticut College, New London, CT

Practices that were new and innovative in 1990, when this conference series began, may be commonplace today...or even wrong. In this two-day program, masters of the field along with emerging experts will examine some of the fruitful paths and dead ends traveled by ecological design over the last 25 years, and the changes that these experiences suggest going forward.

Carol Franklin, FASLA, RLA - "Ecological Planting Design: Where have we come from? What have we achieved? What have we learned?"

James Hitchmough, Ph.D - "The Novel Ecosystem Approach: Meadows by the Sheffield School"

Carol Gracie - "Enabling Native Wildflowers to Succeed...Ecologically Speaking"

Nick Novick - "Boots on the Ground: Planting and Managing Indigenous Landscapes in the Real World"
