We invite you to join us to hear a lecture from Thomas Woltz, principal and owner of the internationally recognized landscape architecture firm Nelson Byrd Woltz. He will discuss his team’s design process for the Angel Oak Preserve, from the initial visit, through ecological and cultural research, to creative design vision and conceptual renderings. The Angel Oak is a powerful place with many lessons to learn about human history, sea islands ecosystems, and our relationship to the land. Thomas will help us understand how the Preserve’s design, rooted in ecological and cultural narratives, provides a model for resilient, innovative, community-oriented park design in Charleston and the Lowcountry.
The event will occur Monday, April 17, in the event hall at Redeemer Presbyterian Church, located at 43 Wentworth Street. Parking is available in the lot directly across the street from the Church in addition to on-street parking. The seated program will begin promptly at 5:30 pm, and a social with light refreshments will follow. Tickets are transferrable but non-refundable.
