30th Anniversary New Directions in the American Landscape Symposium 2019

Date: 1/17/2019 - 1/18/2019

Type: Conferences

LA CES approved?: Yes

Location(s): Connecticut

Description: When NDAL’s first symposium took place in 1990, native plants were largely an afterthought in the landscape professions. The changes since then have been astounding, and NDAL is proud to have played a part. While “ecology into design” has and will remain NDAL’s focus, we have increasingly understood that a “real world ecology” must always consider the influences of people past and present. Our thirtieth anniversary program will illustrate how an expanded definition of “ecological design”— including contributions from garden history, agroecology, anthropology, social justice, art, and of course the ecological sciences—can yield environmentally sound, yet culturally connected landscapes.
