Landscaping with Native Plants – April 2022 Recording


This is a webinar recording presented by the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society on Friday, April 15, 2022. Lisa Tessier, Landscape Architect joins us for a special program on Landscaping with Native Plants.

During this program, we explore the process and numerous benefits of designing home landscapes with native plants. Key planning steps for ensuring a successful design are discussed–from a careful site analysis to purchasing considerations. Along the way, favorite species for our region are shared.

Please view the presentation with one piece of your garden in mind that you would like to work on in the future.

Lisa Tessier has degrees in landscape architecture from Cornell University (B.S.) and from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF, M.S.). Lisa presently teaches in the Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Sustainability programs at SUNY Delhi. She previously taught at Capital Community College and SUNY ESF, and has worked for two landscape architecture firms and a non-profit called the Center for Community Design Research.
