We would like to recognize and thank Erin Hauer, BS Landscape Architecture, for her landscape design and project support for the Brennan Property natural area restoration project that was installed on February 28th, 2016.
In addition, Erin along with Mary Ann Schmidt, developed a native plant list of species to vegetate both the southern parking strip as well as the riparian area around Crystal Springs at the 21st and SE Umatilla site. The plant collection represents native riparian and upland communities which will help to shade out existing invasive vegetation. The southern roadside planting strip contains native perennials with staggered bloom times, to support pollinators and for seasonal interest. Erin moved back to Colorado this past spring and plans to pursue a Masters in Landscape Architecture. Her dedication and passion for creating landscapes that help communities connect with the natural world will be truly missed.
