For 34 years, LWLA’s educational affiliate, New Directions in the American Landscape (NDAL), has organized an annual two-day symposium in collaboration with Connecticut College Arboretum and Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania. The symposium has a long tradition of celebrating native plants and exploring landscape design at the intersections of ecology, culture, and art.

The 2023 conference features Kate Kennen (Offshoots, Inc), Jared Rosenbaum (author of Wild Plant Culture), Andi Pettis (Governors Island), David Godshall (Terremoto), and many other exciting speakers. More information/registration here.

The symposium is: January 5-6, 2023 (Bryn Mawr College, Bryn Mawr, PA) and January 12-13, 2023 (Connecticut College, New London, CT). We hope to see you there!
