Join one the the Center’s environmental designers, Michelle Bright, on an exploration of the University of Texas’ First Living Wall! Bright, who worked with UT’s School of Architecture to design, grow and install the wall, will speak about the plant selection and strategies used in choosing and placing vegetation for the vertical surface. Learn about what’s growing up, the environmental benefits of a green wall, and the wildlife the wall supports.
