Event description

Description

The Bayard Cutting Arboretum will be holding our second Evolution of the American Landscape horticultural symposium, on February 25, 2019. This full-day symposium will feature prominent speakers that have created and managed landscapes to adapt to a changing environment.

“Long Island experiences hurricanes, increased population pressure, and insect infestations. Our plants and landscape designs must change and evolve to meet these challenges so that we can continue to enjoy our private and public gardens,” commented Nelson Sterner, director, Bayard Cutting Arboretum.

The 2019 symposium focuses on Gardening in a Changing Climate. Speakers will cover how the stresses of global warming impact the geographic distribution of pests, plant breeding and disease, and how gardeners can create a more resilient landscape that can adapt to these changes. They include:

  • Jillian Gall, Conservation Biologist & Environmental Educator
  • Jonathan Lehrer Ph.D., Chairman of the Department of Urban Horticulture and Design at Farmingdale State College
  • Max Lerner, Sustainability Project Development Coordinator for NYC Parks & Rec
  • Michael J. Raupp, Ph.D., Professor & Extension Specialist at the University of Maryland at College Park and a Science Channel Expert
  • Kevin Wiecks, Landscape Curator at Bayard Cutting Arboretum
