Green Infrastructure at SCUP North Atlantic

On April 13, Toby Wolf will join Cornell's University Planner Leslie Schill, University Landscape Architect David Cutter, and lecturer Michele Palmer to present Cornell's green infrastructure initiatives at the North Atlantic Regional Conference of the Society for College and University Planning.

We hope you'll join us in Providence for our panel "Site, Campus, Watershed: Integrating Green Infrastructure in Sustainability Planning." Learn more about SCUP and its regional conference here.

Greening the Garden


The second phase of our renovation of the Boylston Street Border in Boston's Public Garden is nearly complete. Working with landscape architect Deb Howe, arborist Norm Helie, and civil engineer John Cusack, we have moved and planted trees and shrubs, improved drainage, and made space for two more benches.  In the weeks ahead we'll add more perennials and bulbs, and the last tree will be planted early next spring.  

The multi-year rejuvenation of the entire 900 foot length of the the Border is a project of the Friends of the Public Garden, who have posted a project update here. The Friends work in partnership with Boston's Parks Department to care for the Garden, the Common, and the Commonwealth Avenue Mall, and membership is open to all.
