NDAL is planning several new and exciting programs for 2020-2021! Due to COVID-19 precautions, we will be offering webinar courses this summer.
July – August | Ecology, Culture, and the Designed Landscape: Professional Practice Across Disciplines and Scales
For Professional Practitioners including landscape architects & designers, restoration ecologists, and horticulturists
CEUs offered: APLD, ASLA, ISA, SER
November 5th, 2020 | Tower Hill Botanic Garden, Boylston, MA
Coordinated and sponsored by Massachusetts Nursery and Landscape Association
Developed by Larry Weaner & New Directions in the American Landscape
This intensive, indoor, full day workshop will describe specific design, planting, and management techniques for contractors to effectively integrate “wild” landscaping into their repertoire, and grow with the burgeoning ecological landscape market.
An extensive Field Manual will be provided outlining all described approaches and techniques. Attendees will be provided with a password allowing ongoing access to all course materials as well as all displayed PowerPoint images on NDAL’s website post workshop.
Morris Arboretum, Philadelphia, PA | Coordinated and sponsored by Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania*
*Due to COVID-19 precautions, our March 2020 workshop in PA has been postponed (details TBA).
This intensive, interactive, indoor two-day workshop will provide concrete, real world guidance for designing and documenting all phases of native landscape development. Topics will include plant selection criteria, plant recommendations, ecological process-based management specifications, and guidance for maximizing the aesthetic and experiential appeal these landscapes can provide.
UPDATE: NDAL’s 2021 Annual Symposium will be in webinar form.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for finalized Symposium webinar dates, which will be around late January – early February of 2021!
