Pollinators are an imperative part of biodiversity and also vital to our well-being by contributing to one-third of global food production. Their populations and habitats are sharply declining. This presentation explores how pollinators can be supported at multiple scales by the collective effort between conservation ecologists and landscape architects. Join us to learn about the importance of understanding your ecoregion, ways to identify research opportunities, and how to develop a design strategy that includes foraging resources, safe locations, and materials shelter/nesting sites (or host plants for butterflies and moths—Lepidoptera).

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify current trends and major threats relating to pollinator populations and habitat.
  • Know the critical elements and key resources needed for the habitat preservation of pollinators with an emphasis on bees and lepidoptera.
  • Recognize how the work of landscape architects can contribute to the preservation and creation of pollinator habitat.
  • Strategies for implementing pollinator habitat at various scales.
  • Gain insight from lessons learned through practice.

At its core, inequality exists when there are fundamental differences in access to opportunity. Taking the first steps to address it can be difficult and fraught, with a need to recognize power and fully acknowledge its reality and consequences. In this presentation, learn about developing and implementing a comprehensive agency equity framework based on LA Metro’s Equity Platform. From this discussion, we hope to convey a blueprint for incorporating equity into your own agency’s work as we all work as transportation professionals to undo decades of barriers to mobility. Let’s not just talk about equity—let’s define and address it.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess how equity concerns should be identified at an agency wide level.
  • Develop a framework for addressing those concerns.
  • Anticipate resources and other considerations for implementing change to better achieve equity.

Speaker:
Therese McMillan, Executive Director, Metropolitan Transportation Commission

Moderators:
Matthew Romero, ASLA
Jean Senechal Biggs, ASLA
