New Directions in the American Landscape (NDAL) Symposium

The Culture-Ecology Bond:
Perspectives for Landscape Designers

Thursday, January 16 & Friday, January 17, 2020
Connecticut College Arboretum-Cummings Arts Center, New London, CT

Culture and ecology exist in a dynamic relationship: culture shapes ecology and vice versa.  Our 2020 conference will explore this feedback loop as it pertains to landscape design and management.  From historical as well as contemporary perspectives, our presenters will consider the complex, sometimes overlooked ways in which culture and ecology interact and what this means for how ecology-based design can be most effective.
