Thank you for a wonderful 30th annual symposium!

Creating a fresh and inspiring program year after year would not be possible without our outstanding attendees.

We would like to thank our cosponsors Morris Arboretum and Connecticut College, the staff of our venue hosts, the Larry Weaner Landscape Associates team, and of course our attendees. It has been an honor to see familiar faces each year and a thrill to see new ones!
We look forward to continuing the symposium tradition while pushing boundaries of the ecological landscape design conversation.
