Hidden Hydrology as Ecological Inspiration” will focus on current work related to Hidden Hydrology, a project of mapping, on-site exploration and proposed interventions focused on establishing and enhancing connections to urban nature and ecology. The goal of this project is to use the juxtaposition between historical hydrological systems and the modern urban realm to highlight, inform and connect residents with urban nature–past, present and future.

Mithun Associate and landscape architect Jason King will explore the connections between historical and predevelopment hydrology and ecology, and how they influence design, planning opportunities and constraints. Session attendees will learn to apply principles that integrate urban nature and maximize potential for resilience and integrated green infrastructure solutions.
