"Designing Change: Ecological Landscapes for Uncertain Times" by Travis Beck
Travis Beck, newly arrived director of horticulture for the Mt. Cuba Center, is the author of Principles of Ecological Landscape Design which looks at how landscapes can be both aesthetically attractive and environmentally beneficial. His talk will focus on the ecology of change and how change works in the landscape.
At Mt. Cuba, Travis is responsible for design, management and plant selection of Mt. Cuba’s native plant gardens and natural lands. He most recently was landscape project manager at the New York Botanical Garden, and earned his master’s degree in environmental horticulture from Ohio State University.
This is a joint program with members of the Hardy Plant Society/Mid-Atlantic Chapter and the Henry Foundation for Botanical Research.
