The 29th Annual Landscape Design Symposium

Ecological Complexity in Landscapes for People

Date and Location:

Thursday, January 11 — Friday, January 12, 2018
Science Center Auditorium,
Montgomery County Community College, Blue Bell, PA

NDAL’s 29th annual conference explores a core challenge of contemporary landscape design: blending plants, wildlife, and people in spaces that advance ecological function and are enjoyable to be in. While the destination may be straightforward, the roadmaps are often ill defined or sometimes nonexistent. Learn from the fruitful journeys and occasional frustrating dead ends of a select group of landscape architects and designers who are creating places that effectively and consistently connect people and nature.
