August 10: In the Field – Ecology-based Landscape Practice

Date & Time: Thursday, August 10th, 2023, 9 AM – 4:30 PM CT,  Location: 1207 Seminole Hwy, Madison, WI 53711,  Fee: $265,  Conducted by NDAL, New Directions in the American Landscape

Our visit will begin at the Darrel Morrison-designed Native Plant Garden. This 4-acre planting provides a masterfully designed miniaturization of the prairie and savanna landscapes we will explore later in the day. These will include the 73-acre Curtis Prairie and the 47-acre Green Prairie, two of the most renowned achievements in the history of ecological restoration. There we will conduct an in-depth examination of how these stunning prairie landscapes were conceived, planted, and managed. We will also visit part of the Grady Savanna near Greene Prairie, where extensive restoration has been in progress over the past decade.
