Gardeners, Landscape Design, Environmental, Horticultural Professionals, and Government Execs Land Ethics Symposium Set for February 17, 2011

Gardeners and garden-related professionals, environmental consultants, and government officials won’t want to miss the 11th Annual Land Ethics Symposium, sponsored by Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve (New Hope, PA). The symposium focuses on ways to create economical and ecologically balanced landscapes using native plants and restoration techniques. By combining sustainability and attractiveness, the speakers offer practical solutions to common site problems.

This year, topics include some challenging thoughts on how the horticultural industry can meet its own needs without compromising sustainability, recommendations for landscapes associated with historic buildings, innovative approaches to restoring the ecological functions of floodplains, building biodiversity into landscape management, and making the most of the colors of natural ecosystems.

There’s always at least one speaker who sweeps you back in time and reminds you in a very visceral sense of why you chose a vocation or avocation that connects you to the natural world.

Last day for registration is February 7, 2011. For more information, contact Amy Hoffman at hoffman@bhwp.org, or call 215-862-2924, ext. 102.
