The Madoo Conservancy is pleased to announce our winter lecture series with three talks exploring the effects of landscape architecture on our waterways.

Leading landscape architects will discuss the effects of landscape architecture on our waterways — and highlight their current projects and experiences working in the bays, ponds and oceanfront on the East End — during The Madoo Conservancy’s winter lecture series kicking off Sunday, February 11, with Stacy Paetzel, founder and principal of Mattituck-based Marshall Paetzel Landscape Architecture.

The series will continue on Sunday, February 18, with Beka Sturges, an associate principal of Reed Hilderbrand in New Haven, and conclude on March 11 with Christopher LaGuardia, founder and principal of LaGuardia Design Landscape Architecture in Water Mill.

Environmental planning consultant Rachel Gruzen will host each discussion, which begin at 12 p.m. in the conservancy’s recently restored, circa-1740 barn. A reception in the adjacent summerhouse will follow. Tickets are $25, or $20 for members, or $65 and $50 respectively for all three lectures.
