Time: 12 noon
Fee for all three lectures: $50.00 Members, $65 Non-Members
The Madoo Conservancy is pleased to announce a series of three lectures exploring landscape architecture and our waterways. The talks will be led by leading landscape architects who will discuss current projects and their experiences working in our delicate environment. With bays, ponds and the ocean the East End of Long Island is a unique environment that development has degraded. However, landscape architecture can lead the way to improving our water quality issues with good design.
Each Landscape Architect will be joined by Rachel Gruzen, MEM, LEED AP an environmental planning consultant and educator for a lively discussion on landscape design and the environment within the regional context of a changing East End. Ms. Gruzen most recently coordinated The Peconic Estuary Protection Committee, an alliance of eastern Long Island municipalities and agencies addressing water quality in the Peconic Estuary. We’ll discuss design solutions and good practices to alleviate the stressors on our local ecosystems that can be put in place by residents and designers.
The talks will take place in our recently restored 1740 barn and be followed by a reception in the adjacent summerhouse.
Tickets $20 members, $25 non-members. Three lectures for $50 members, $65 non members
