Reading Our Landscape

Landscapes tell us stories. Reading a landscape connects us to that place. We understand the richness of nature and history embedded there. Stone, soil and seasons, water and weather begin the story. Layers of life—from soil organisms and fungi, to plant, animal, and human populations—provide the actors. These elements weave into food webs, communities, and an ecosystem.

"Interpreting this reading matter, in place, on the land, seeing living things in their total environment, is an adventure...(in) ecology." (Reading the Landscape of America, May Theilgaard Watts, 1957) In learning to read these stories we become better designers and stewards of our landscapes.

Speakers include: Darrel Morrison, FASLA,  Landscape Design as Ecological Art: Merging Art and Science in Regional Landscapes; Bonnie Harper-Lore, Future Conservation Gardens, Large and Small; Dawn Pape, Creating a New Normal Across our Regional Landscape; and Diane Hilscher, Ecological Design: One Yard and Garden at a Time.
