Sutton's Roof Top Garden

Dr. Richard Sutton, Professor of Landscape Architecture, will be making several local and national presentations this fall. He will lead colleagues from Texas A & M and PennDesign in a session entitled “Green Roof Ecosystems: Connecting Research, Design, and Performance” at the 2016 ASLA National Meeting in New Orleans. Their presentation is based on the book, Green Roof Ecosystems, edited by Sutton and published last year by Springer’s Ecological Studies Series. Sutton will also present “A New Deal Parks Tale” at the Great Plains Chapter Annual Meeting drawing on his chapter about Lincoln’s Pioneers Park in a book he is writing about the Nebraska landscape. As a featured speaker at the Heartland Native Plant Summit hosted by Omaha’s Lauritzen Gardens, he will use his research work on green roofs to inform attendees and help them understand the wider use of native plants and community ecology in designing, installing and maintaining resilient landscapes. Nebraska’s Federated Garden Clubs has also tapped Sutton to present at their ongoing Landscape Design School series in Elkhorn about Landscape History and Professional Landscape Resources.
