Beloved Door County Native Plant Communities - A Deep Dive with Art & Science

Nancy Aten & Dan Collins

June 17 & 18 | 9 - 4

Nancy and Dan will introduce four beloved plant communities native to Door County with a goal of gaining a deep understanding using art and science. Class will be outdoors in three-hour blocks alternating moderate hikes and field studies using methods of art and science. No experience is necessary. Scientific field assessment techniques are paired with aesthetic exercises in watercolors and writing. Ecological communities are located at The Clearing and off-site, including: meadows, woodlands, wetlands and Niagara Escarpment. Bring hiking shoes, watercolors if you have them. Simple watercolor kits and other materials will be provided along with any needed training. The instructors will contact students prior to class.

Nancy Aten, PLA, ASLA, and Dan Collins, P.E., form the award-winning Landscapes of Place, a landscape architecture, ecological restoration and conservation planning firm with projects in Wisconsin, Michigan and New York. Nancy and Dan incorporate planning, design and landscape implementation and management. Their clients are land trusts, educational institutions, and private landowners. Nancy is consulting landscape architect for The Clearing, and together they were honored with The Clearing's Hawthorn Award for their dedicated volunteer efforts.
