Part 1 | Doug’s Place: Plants and Animals in Concert (1:00 – 2:15 PM EST)
Douglas Tallamy, Ph.D.

Dr. Douglas Tallamy will illustrate how the experiences and observations at his home landscape have enhanced and confirmed his widely acclaimed research on the specialized relationships between animals and plants. Using his home property for examples, Douglas will explain why this is so, and describe how native plants can be selected and arranged in a manner that supports these food relationships, and increases the habitat value of our projects.

Part 2 | Living in a Garden Ecology Lab (2:30 – 3:45 PM EST)
Larry Weaner, FAPLD

Landscape Designer Larry Weaner has observed and interacted with ecological processes for over 30 years on his small, third-of-an-acre suburban property. Learn how this experience led to a “brains over brawn” landscape approach, one that incorporates natural succession, the reproductive abilities of plants, and the artistic editing of spontaneous vegetation.

Part 3 | Panel (4:00 – 4:30 PM EST)

Through the lens of their respective disciplines, Larry and Doug will compare notes on how to best communicate the challenges and rewards of melding habit creation and garden design to both expectations of clients and the general public, to be followed by a question and answer session involving both presenters.
