This is a classroom workshop with an optional short field walk at the end.
A solid understanding of natural plant communities is indispensable for any designer looking to create native landscapes that are ecologically sound and aesthetically satisfying. Ecologist Pat Swain will describe the plant communities common in eastern Massachusetts, with an overview of the conditions that influence the species assembled in each one, and a focus on the structure of successional types that may be mimicked in a successful ecological design.
This event is co-sponsored by the BSLA.
