Kristi Allen is the Program Coordinator for the Pennsylvania Plant Conservation Network. She holds a Master’s Degree in environmental social work from the University of Denver, with a Masters Certificate in Animal Assisted Social Work. Her graduate research focused primarily on social impacts of forest carbon markets and the therapeutic benefits of nature. Prior to joining the PPCN, she co-founded a community garden in Baltimore, Maryland and managed grants for the Baltimore City Health Department.

The Pennsylvania Plant Conservation Network(PPCN): A New DCNR Initiative for Collaborative Conservation The Pennsylvania Plant Conservation Network (PPCN), is a new program spearheaded by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Backed by DCNR and Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program (PNHP) data, the PPCN will leverage statewide partnerships to coordinate on-the-ground stewardship, outreach, and education efforts. Our goal is to cultivate collaborative projects across the state in ways that build partnerships to meaningfully advance plant conservation in Pennsylvania. Join us in building towards a future where Pennsylvania’s native plants are thriving, abundant, and cared for by a vibrant and inclusive community of conservation advocates.

Larry Weaner - Principal Larry Weaner Landscape Associates. In 1992 Larry founded Larry Weaner Landscape Associates, combining expertise in horticulture, environmental science, and the traditions of garden design. His design and restoration work spans more than ten states and has been profiled in national publications, including The New York Times and Landscape Architecture Magazine. He coauthored the book, Garden Revolution: How Our Landscapes Can Be a Source of Environmental Change, with Tom Christopher (Timber Press, 2016) which was the recipient of the 2017 Book Award from the American Horticultural Society.

Breaking the Rules: Ecological Landscape Design and Traditional Landscape Methodology

Using native plants requires more than simply expanding the conventional design palette. Based on observation of how native plants develop in nature, new design, implementation, and management techniques emerge, many of which are diametrically opposed to the traditional horticultural practice. This presentation examines how alternative approaches on everything from selecting, arranging, and spacing plants to the simple act of weeding can yield more easily maintained landscapes that express the beauty and ecological richness of our native landscapes.
