Presented by Jonathan Ogren, UT Austin, Architecture Environmental Planner

Jonathan will pull from his work on the Texas Landscape Project, regional planning processes and site specific ecological plans to discuss the use of creating more sustainable landscapes that increase ecological function, enhance the user experience, increase biodiversity and create more intact native plant communities. Site level projects will get into the devilish details of what makes a project work to enhance ecological functionality and create compelling experiences for people and acknowledge that there are still lots of things to figure out.
