“Beauty and Butterflies: Adventures in Designed Ecology at Brooklyn Bridge Park
Who doesn’t love butterflies? Our gardens can be stunningly beautiful while also providing habitat for the wildlife that enriches our lives.
For ecological horticulturist Rebecca McMackin, cultivating habitat is central to landscape management. In her 10 years as Director of Horticulture at Brooklyn Bridge Park, Rebecca oversaw 85 acres of diverse, organic landscapes, all managed to support birds, butterflies, and soil microorganisms.
Join us to learn how to use ecological insight and experimentation to develop new management strategies – and why careful observation and documentation of wildlife in your gardens is crucial to their success.
