The Beauty of the Wild: Darrel Morrison

Tri-State Events

Sponsored By: NYBG Adult Education

A pioneer of “re-wilded landscapes,” Darrel Morrison revisits the people and places that have nourished his long career as a celebrated landscape architect-from designer Jens Jensen and naturalist Aldo Leopold to the prairie grasses and wildflowers of his native Midwest. Focusing on his late-career designs including NYBG’s Goldman Stone Mill landscape, the tallgrass plantings at Storm King Art Center, and Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Native Flora Garden, Morrison shares lessons about the links among ecology, art, music, and design; the urgent need to preserve natural areas; and the importance of having fun through it all.
