Summer 2021 Virtual Series

Details & Registration in April/May

NDAL will offer a live, virtual series of programming organized in two categories:

1) Programs for Professional Practitioners 

This series explores an eclectic array of innovative landscape practices embracing both ecology and culture. Speakers include Roy Diblik, Wambui Ippolito, Eric Groft, W. Gary Smith, and Donald J. Leopold. Join the room for our “Prairie-side Chat” interviews by Larry Weaner, as influential practitioners including Leslie Sauer, Thomas Woltz, and Tom Wessels reveal the thought processes and motivations that have guided their work. In addition, Larry Weaner will teach a four-part intensive course on ecology-based landscape design.

This national series is geared toward landscape professionals including landscape architects & designers, horticulturists, and restoration ecologists.

2) Programs for Home Gardeners, Educators, and Youth & Prospective Professionals

Home gardeners can learn about organic landscaping and native meadows; young people can learn pathways for entering the landscape field; and educators, administrators, and other community members can learn about designing nature-based environments for children with American and Danish case studies. Join the room for our “Prairie-side Chat” interviews by Larry Weaner, as influential practitioners including Leslie Sauer, Thomas Woltz, and Tom Wessels reveal the thought processes and motivations that have guided their work.
