Ambler Campus: Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture Lecture - Dr. Donald Leopold
Start Date: 2/20/2013Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 2/20/2013

Event Description:
Join distinguished educator, ecologist, conservationist and native plant expert Dr. Donald Leopold as he presents “Natural Communities for Restoring Degraded Landscapes and Creating Sustainable Green Systems.” Some of the rarest natural communities in New York State and the Great Lakes Region of North America are restricted to “marginal” sites — those that have extremes in soil nutrients and salinity, hydrology, and temperature. Many otherwise rare species can be abundant in these communities because they are well adapted to these environmental extremes. These species have great potential in landscape uses under similarly extreme and typically artificial conditions. Recent, current, and planned projects at SUNY-ESF, where Dr. Leopold teaches and on industrial wastelands and abandoned agricultural fields in central New York are incorporating these strategies to establish unique natural communities. This approach can be regionalized to address difficult landscaping issues elsewhere and to establish functional assemblages of rare species that also have significant aesthetic and educational values. CEU credits are available!
