This is a virtual talk followed by Q&A that can be viewed on the library's YouTube channel, here.

Over the last century, urban development has had a devastating impact on local ecologies and contributed to broad declines in global wildlife populations. “Landscape as Habitat: Planting for the Birds and the Bees” will draw on Landscape Architecture Bureau’s (LAB) ongoing exploration and implementation of sustainable design practices to strengthen local ecosystems and contribute to urban biodiversity. LAB Principal, Joe Chambers, ASLA will first discuss urban ecology issues and then provide case studies and actionable solutions for ways to address environmental concerns while building healthy and more resilient urban landscapes.
