Please join us in our July Zoom meeting for Part 2 of Kevin & Diane's ReWilding presentation series - Why ReWilding Matters. If you missed part 1, it has been published on our YouTube channel. We will also be trying to live stream the presentation on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. All of our presentation meetings qualify for NTMN AT hours and DCMG CEU hours.
Kevin W. Sloan is a landscape architect, urban planner, writer and professor. The work of his professional practice, Kevin Sloan Studio in Dallas, Texas, has been nationally and internationally recognized. Recently, he is the author of the Branch Waters Network, an organizing principle for the sprawling DFW Metroplex, using the entire water shed network of rivers, creeks and sheet springs to improve water quality, mitigate flood events and provide quality green space and parks for every neighborhood and economic strata. He teaches architecture at the University of Texas at Arlington, and loves teaching as much as he loves making beautiful places.
Diane Sloan is the CEO of Kevin Sloan Studio. Her executive and studio leadership is informed by over 30 years of experience working for pre-eminent development companies in Texas and in the Public Relations department at Syracuse University where she worked prior to relocating to Texas in 1995. She has a largely useless degree in Fine Arts from THE Ohio State University, and learned everything she knows about plants from the the Native Plant Society of Texas. She is never happier than when she finally has the garden weeded and is ecstatic that a couple green anoles moved into it this spring.
You must register to join. You can join us early for some social time. Will be nice to catch up with all of you!
“Rewilding is a new approach to designing the space between buildings that’s sweeping the world,” Sloan says. “It's something that can become part of just about any landscape project, either newly proposed or existing. And it really presents a very attractive set of benefits to individuals and this is why it's being so rapidly embraced by so many places and cities around the world.” – Kevin Sloan, on GreenSourceDFW.org.
