Design & Management of Sustainable Landscapes: McDaniel Branch Case Study

September 10th, T U E S D A Y night | Doors Open at 6:30 pm
Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Day Hall
Please join us and bring a friend!

Interested in learning more about how to capture rainwater using native wetland plants?

Join us for a spectacular presentation from the team that designed the McDaniel Branch Wetlands in southwest Atlanta, a landscape that captures stormwater and where native plants, pollinators, and birds now thrive.  The wetlands duplicate natural processes and feature ponds and pond edges with an abundance of easily available native plants, including wild rye, river oats, brown-eyed susans, ironweed, Joe-pye weed, native aquatics, American hornbeam, American beautyberry, buttonbush, spicebush, and many more.  Learn about the challenges of designing and installing rainwater landscapes and how they were overcome in this highly successful landscape.

We are especially fortunate that many of the site designers will  provide their perspectives, including Michael Kidd, landscape architect; Andrew Walter, COA Department of City Planning; Larry Tucciaraone, COA Department of Watershed Management; and Brian Williams, Trees Atlanta and the Atlanta Beltline.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Social hour begins at 6:30. The meeting begins at 7 o’clock. Meetings are always FREE and open to the public.
Tell the Atlanta Botanical Gardens staff you’re there for the GNPS meeting and the garden entrance fee will be waived. GNPS member car poolers earn discount parking vouchers- be sure to sign-in when you arrive.
