Where TreePeople, Mulholland Drive, Beverly Hill...When 11/17/2013 at 03:00PM
It’s lining up to be another dry winter, with water reserves at worryingly low levels. So what’s with L.A.’s obsession with expansive green lawns? How did this landscape ideal, imported from rainy Northern Europe, come to mean the good life in water-scarce Los Angeles? Can we keep it up, or is there a better way? Is the better way possibly even more beautiful?
On Sunday, November 17 at 3pm, TreePeople will partner with the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West to answer some of these questions. “The Tyranny of Turf: Los Angeles Landscapes after the Aqueduct” will be a panel discussion with experts including: William Deverell, Professor of History at the University of Southern California, Chris Sellers, Professor of History at State University of New York, Stony Brook, Doug Sackman, Professor of History at the University of Puget Sound, and Paula Schiffman, Professor of Biology at California State University, Northridge.
