Project Manager: Kristen Saksa

Overview: Sustainable landscapes have the potential to restore ecological benefits and foster appreciation of natural ecosystems within the context of our rapidily urbanizing world. The goal of Rethinking Laird’s Landscape project is to cultivate public awareness and appreciation of sustainable landscaping at UD’s Laird Campus. By providing opportunities for the public to engage the sustainable landscape on Laird Campus we will build public understanding, support, and increase appreciation of  sustainable landscape in general.
