Mark your calendars for the 29th annual Landscape Design Symposium at Montgomery County Community College! This two-day symposium on January 11th and 12th explores a core challenge of contemporary landscape design: blending plants, wildlife, and people in spaces that advance ecological function and are enjoyable to be in. While the destination is clear, the route is complex and ill-defined or nonexistent. Learn from real world experiences of a select group of landscape architects and designers who are successfully navigating this challenge. For more information and to register: http://bit.ly/2Ab5HC0.
