Join us in the Summer Studio for three talks with leading landscape architects who will discuss their experience working in the bays, ponds, and oceanfront of the East End of Long Island—a delicate and unique environment that has been degraded by development. They will present current projects as well as suggest regionally-appropriate design solutions that can be put in place by residents and designers to alleviate stressors on our local ecosystems.
Environmental planning consultant and educator Rachel Gruzen, MEM, LEED AP, will join each discussion. Gruzen currently coordinates The Peconic Estuary Protection Committee, an alliance of Eastern Long Island municipalities and agencies addressing water quality.
