Ecology-based Design Intensive Courses
Demand for high performing, ecology-based landscapes is increasing faster than the availability of the specialized knowledge needed to achieve them. This intensive two-day course will provide concrete, real world guidance for designing and documenting all phases of native landscape development.
Attendees will have login-protected access to an extensive, digital, login-protected manual that documents all aspects of the program, including plant selection criteria, plant recommendations, and ecological process-based management specifications.
2022 February-March Virtual Intensive Course – Registration is open!
