Increasingly, these values are coming to the forefront of project goals and objectives; this Advanced Smartscape Course will equip you with the basic knowledge needed to confidently and effectively incorporate the needs of wildlife and pollinators into your projects. Through this three-part series, students will deepen their understanding of how our urban landscape planning and maintenance decisions can either help or hinder our natural wildlife populations. Three classes will focus on: Wildlife and Pollinator Ecology Overview, Plant Materials for Wildlife and Pollinator Conservation, and How to Design a Site-Specific Wildlife and Pollinator Planting Palette.
