Jane Wolff Lecture: Defining an Environmental Landscape, Re-Rescheduled to Fall 2011

Date TBD

Ms. Wolff, director of the landscape architecture program and associate professor at the University of Toronto, will address the intersection of ecology, design, public education, and grassroots advocacy in intensely inhabited landscapes. She’ll discuss her work in places like San Francisco Bay, the California Delta, and New Orleans, where ongoing interactions between nature and cultural intervention have produced complicated ecological circumstances. Her goal is to develop an environmental vocabulary that can be shared by planners, designers, scientists, and citizens alike—as they contemplate plans for the future of their communities.
