The fundamentals of the ecological planning method developed by landscape architect and regional planner, Ian McHarg, establish a basis to plan and develop both individual projects and entire communities that can be enduring (sustainable).

Case studies, field trips, and guest presenters will highlight specific examples of the successful implementation of ecological planning by the private development sector.
