New Directions in American Landscape will be celebrating its 25th anniversary with a two day symposium at Temple University’s Ambler Campus in Ambler on Thursday and Friday, January 16-17.

The conference is sponsored by the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania and New Directions in the American Landscape (developed by Larry Weaner Landscape Associates Inc.), and Connecticut College Arboretum (which will hold the same symposium in New London, on January 9-10.)

The symposium will focus on assessing and re-assessing ecological design. Practices that were new and innovative in 1990, when this conference series began, may be commonplace today…or even wrong. In this two-day program, influential practitioners, both established and emerging, will examine some of the dead ends and fruitful paths traveled by ecological design over the last 25 years, and the changes that these experiences suggest going forward.

Registration fee is $345 and includes all lectures, continental breakfast, lunch, break refreshments, and a reception with music, beer/wine and hors d’oeuvres. Student rates available with valid student ID.

CEUs will be available. For more information about the conference speakers and full program, visit lds.morrisarboretum.org.
