Building in the Aftermath Symposium
The Gulf Coast: Restoring Wetlands and Plant Life
Thursday, February 23
6:30–8:00 pm
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita not only destroyed countless buildings along the Gulf Coast, but also killed plant life and devastated the already-compromised coastal wetlands. The loss of these natural elements is doubly tragic, because if still intact, they could mitigate damage from future storms. A panel of landscape architects and planners will examine the role of these critical components in a healthy ecosystem and discuss the vital need for restoration of the wetlands and other issues. Moderated by Joseph E. Brown, FASLA, president of EDAW, the program will include Paul Rookwood, ASLA, AICP, managing principal of WRT, a planning and design firm working on the redevelopment of New Orleans; and Kevin Shanley, ASLA, who will address the importance of wetlands in the recovery planning process. The American Society of Landscape Architects has provided special support for this program. •1.5 CEU
$12 Museum and ASLA members; $17 nonmembers; $10 students. Prepaid registration required.
