Session 1: Sustainable and Stylish Meadows as “Hypnotizing Horticulture”
Meadows are engaging, environmentally responsive, and increasingly are capturing the interest of the public and homeowners. Can meadows be beautiful and enduring? What are the benefits of planting natives versus adapted non-natives? What are the challenges of selling, establishing and maintaining meadows in various geographies and ecologies? For 15 years Richard Hartlage has successfully researched precedents and trends and has established and maintained meadows on the east and west coasts of the United States. Photos and video clips will be used to illustrate methods and results in various seasons.

LACES Credit Hours Approved.  Session 2: Reclaiming Our Riparian Backyard: Igniting Community Interest in Restoring Urban Habitat
Five acres of construction debris have been regenerated into a place which reflects the natural beauty and wildlife of our region. It is the definition of everyday magic as the casual visitor walks through the Cottonwood Gallery, enjoying the sights, sounds and natural wonders of the Middle Rio Grande bosque. Participants will learn how we utilized community partners, grant funding, and a limited budget to transform an idea and a vacant site into an environmental legacy. Participants will learn about new methods and innovative tools used to teach ecology and conservation to visitors of all ages in an outdoor setting.

Session 2 has been approved for 1 credit hour by The Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System.
