Lawns, Leave & Laws: Practical Pathways Toward Lawn Alternatives & Ecological Turf Cultivation
Thursday, August 5, noon – 3:30 p.m. CDT
Many now recognize that the dominance of manicured lawns in many of our landscapes is environmentally harmful. That said, many homeowner’s associations and municipalities are regulating front yard plant heights and store shelves are still stocked to the brim with pesticide products composed of harmful chemicals. An environmental law professor, two ecologists, and an organic turf expert will share practical ways to overcome these hurdles and create more ecologically beneficial landscapes. Their short presentations will be followed by an extensive roundtable discussion and audience Q&A enriched by their interdisciplinary perspectives.
