Evolving Strategies for Evolving Landscapes:
Beyond the Garden Bed

To work with the land today means dealing with dramatic change. Factors from landscape fragmentation to accidental species introductions have made it difficult to establish resilient plant communities. Yet increased interested in ecology, landscape performance and natural aesthetics has created significant need to establish these landscapes successfully and consistently. Our two-day conference will explore how to interact with the complex, evolving realities of today's landscapes and those of the future.

CEUs available for landscape architects, APLD members, arborists and horticulturists.

Featured speakers include:

Warren Byrd, Jr. is a landscape architect and founder of Nelson Byrd Woltz, professor emeritus at the University of Virginia and a fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects. A major focus of his work has been the understanding and adaptation of natural systems and regional plant communities.
