From the Mid-Hudson ASCE:
Please join us as our guest speaker, Bryan Quinn, RLA (CT, CLARB), Founder of One Nature, speaks on
" Design for Ecological Function at Safe Harbors Green "
Mr. Quinn's lifelong dedication to landscapes and the environment is evident in One Nature's diverse body of work, including gardens, parks of all sizes, campuses, agricultural land, and urban design. Regardless of size, he strives to bring out the potential for every project to inspire people through ecological design. Part scientist and part artist, his design methodology is place-based and relies on a sensitivity to the particular qualities of each location.
Safe Harbors Green in Newburgh, NY was constructed in 2016 and provided immediate uplifts to local urban ecology. These quantifiable uplifts continue to improve over time as the park's habitat matures. In this talk, specifically assembled for the civil engineering community, ecological design expert Bryan Quinn (One Nature, Beacon, NY) will discuss the fundamentals of building landscapes which contribute in quantifiable ways to the environment. Key concepts will include soil science, island biogeography, adaptive management, and ethical topics related to the built environment. All concepts will be discussed in relation to built, local projects - with special emphasis on Safe Harbors Green.
