CCLC’s 2021 Turning a New Leaf Conference will be held virtually on December 8-9, from 9 AM – 3 PM, and will be followed by live field events in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia on December 10.   This year, we are highlighting collaborations that normalize sustainable practices and ensure diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.

We are excited to welcome keynote speaker, landscape architect, Darrel Morrison.  If you’re looking for a great summer read, check out Darrel’s new book

Most presentations will be full-audience sessions, with one shorter concurrent session, offering numerous options, each day. Topics include: climate change, growing the workforce, results from nativar trials, equity in landscape design, landscaping impacts on pollinators, permaculture, working with HOAs, beavers and stream restoration, and MORE.  And, for inspiration, we will highlight several 2021 BUBBA-award-winning BMP projects.

The DC-area field trip will be held at Audubon Naturalist Society’s Woodend Sanctuary in Chevy Chase, MD, where we will visit their new stream restoration with regenerative step-pool conveyance, permeable parking lot, and more. Stay tuned more information about the PA and VA field days.
