The Culture – Ecology Bond: Perspectives for Landscape Design
Landscape Design Symposium 2020
January 9-10, 2020
Bryn Mawr, PA

Culture and ecology exist in a dynamic relationship: culture shapes ecology and vice versa. Our 2020 conference will explore this feedback loop as it pertains to landscape design and management. From historical as well as contemporary perspectives, our presenters will consider the complex, sometimes overlooked ways in which culture and ecology interact and what this means for how ecology-based design can be most effective.

  • Featured Speakers:
    William Bryant Logan, ISA Certified Arborist and author of Sprout Lands: Tending the Endless Gift of Trees explores the history of practices like fire and coppicing and how they shaped North American ecosystems.
  • Matt Partain, Grounds Superintendent at Glenstone Museum in Potomac, MD will share what it takes to create and manage a large-scale native landscape organically.
  • Michael Piantedosi, Director of Conservation at Native Plant Trust explains how their work with banking seeds has increased knowledge about germination requirements for our native flora.
  • Anne Lacouture Penniman, Landscape Architect of Anne Penniman Associates will show us designs highlighting native plants in gardens that range in scale from private gardens to public parks.
