The Bayard Cutting Arboretum will be holding our second Evolution of the American Landscape horticultural symposium, on February 25, 2019. This full-day symposium will feature prominent speakers that have created and managed landscapes to adapt to a changing environment.

“Long Island Parks have experienced hurricanes, increased population pressure, and insect infestations. Our plants and landscape designs must change and evolve to meet these challenges so that we can continue to enjoy our private and public gardens,”
• Nelson Sterner, Director, Bayard Cutting Arboretum

Our symposium speakers are a diverse group of published authors, botanical garden directors, and landscape architects who have worked on all types of garden projects ranging from small residential gardens to large-scale projects. Attendees will receive the following credits: 5 CEU Certified Nursery & Landscape Professionals (CNLP)
