April 29th – Native Landscaping for Cape Cod
Jack Ahern, Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and this talk is Designing with Nature on Cape Cod and the Islands. His talk will explain how to preserve the special environmental and visual character of the Cape and Islands through an “ecologically-based” approach to landscape design. This approach starts with an understanding of the Cape and Islands’ native plants and plant communities, which are well-adapted to local soils and growing conditions. Ahern will discuss how these plant communities can be designed for landscapes where people live, learn, work, and play. His approach will be illustrated with examples of landscapes on the Cape and Islands that have applied this approach. The talk is a preview of Ahern’s upcoming book “Designing with Nature on Cape Cod and the Islands”.
