Incorporating science into landscape design is of little use if the resulting plantings are not harmonious to the people who engage with them, and are not in tune with the animals that depend on them. In this virtual symposium we will explore how scientific research can lead to tangible approaches for a new landscape tradition - one where ecological, anthropological, and sociological considerations expand the scope of landscape design.

This program is geared toward the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions.

Anticipated CEUs: APLD; ASLA/LACES; ISA; NOFA; PNLA; SER
