Registration Closes at noon on Feb. 17.

Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve will be hosting the 21st annual Land Ethics Symposium on Thursday, Feb. 18, 2021, 8 am – 1 pm, digitally via Zoom.

Focusing on a “Creative Approaches for Ecological Landscaping” theme, this year’s symposium will have broad appeal to conservation-minded professionals and homeowners alike. Experts from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region will discuss topics that include the intersection of ecology and art in landscape design, the future of urban park management, the restoration of the American chestnut and highlight Philadelphia’s Navy Yard as a redevelopment success story.

The current state of the environment means that everyone—landscape architects and designers, environmentalists, public and private land managers, municipalities, gardeners, property owners and students—has an important role in restoring ecological diversity and balance to natural areas large and small.
