    If you’ve heard that using native plants in your yard helps improve the environment for everyone, but are not sure why or how to do that, this series of webinars brings you up to speed on ways to turn your home garden into a native-friendly, sustainable and resilient habitat for birds and other wildlife. Start with the big picture, presented by Dr. Douglas Tallamy, the scientist who has made the case for enhancing the environment with natives, then follow up with a series of webinars that delves deeper into the “how”.

    This virtual series is presented via Zoom.

    $10 covers the entire series. Attend each program or pick and choose your topics. Another series will be offered this fall to help you continue your efforts and prepare for the winter.

    Expanding Elasticity in the Landscape

    Join us April 15, 2021 | 2 PM EST

    Credits: 1 PDH - HSW

    Instructor: Greg Miller, Principal Landscape Architect - MRWM Landscape Architects

    A lot has changed over the past year and public landscapes are increasingly recognized for their role in ecological resilience, social justice, mental well-being, physical health, and economic stability. Designing spaces that grow and adapt is a hallmark of landscape architecture, but designing them to be truly elastic is what makes them timeless.

    This presentation investigates the benefits of elasticity and plasticity in natural systems and explores ways to apply these lessons to the built environment. These strategies reinforce and amplify the effectiveness of landscapes in creating stronger and healthier communities.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Gain an understanding of how elasticity and plasticity creates resilient natural systems.

    2. Learn how to apply these principles to landscapes in the built environment.

    3. Explore the possibilities of incorporating increasing elasticity to the profession of landscape architecture.
