Native Plants in American Gardens: A Brief History
At various times in American history, conservationists, landscape architects, and backyard gardeners have encouraged the use of native plants in public and private landscapes. This illustrated lecture will provide a historical overview of these movements, spanning the late-nineteenth century Chicago Prairie School and the late-twentieth century grassroots resurgence among gardeners and conservationists throughout the United States. Among other questions, this talk explores the platforms and concerns of native plants advocates over the course of the twentieth century.
