September 8 Program

Upcycling Our Urban Ecosystems

Presented in partnership with the American Society of Landscape Architects-St. Louis Chapter, Missouri Botanical Garden, BiodiverseCity St. Louis, and the Academy of Science of St. Louis. 

Online registration is now closed. Walk-in registrants are welcomed at the door of the event.

In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every piece of land matters. However, in our quest for sustainability, we habitually neglect the full potential of built landscapes. 

Urban areas are increasingly where we come into contact with the natural world – not just in parks and nature preserves, but in more familiar places like residential landscapes, restaurants, campuses, and even parking lots. Too often, these spaces are designed to serve a particular, and often limited, purpose. 

This presentation will challenge attendees to think broadly about all outdoor spaces and recognize their untapped potential. .

Flance Learning Center opened to students in June 2014, and aims to be an exemplary early
learning center, serving children of all incomes and backgrounds, six-weeks to six-years of age in a new, $11.5 million facility. The center’s design team placed heavy emphasis on ensuring that indoor and outdoor spaces were resource-efficient, free of toxins, healthy for students, comfortable for teachers, and cost-effective.  In recognition of this emphasis on health and environmental
sustainability, Flance Center is registered to become only the 4th LEED for Schools Certified
Preschool in the world.   Universal Design features are also incorporated to create a convenient
experience for staff and students, regardless of physical ability, thereby creating an environment in which special-needs and typical-needs children can thrive side-by-side in the same classrooms.
