Those who love lakes recognize that they feel better in many ways just by being near the water. You can enhance the positive impacts of nature by paying careful attention to the plants, trees, and groundcovers that live on shore. In this interactive workshop, we will touch on the evidence for “natural benefits” found in recent research and attempt to capture what particular elements constitute your ideal lakeside property. Be prepared to share your personal successes and “learning opportunities” so that we gather lots of take-away ideas.

Presenter: Barbara Kreski, Director of Horticulture Therapy, Chicago Botanical Gardens
