AT: Chapter Program Lauren Simpson “Wildscape Your Yard”
January 2, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Lauren Simpson is the founder of St. Julian’s Crossing, a FACEBOOK community which teaches how to “Wildscape Your Yard” and documents the pollinator and urban wildlife-friendly space she has made at her just-outside-the-Loop home.
The average neighborhood yard may look pretty, but doesn’t support the range of wildlife that is crucial to a healthy environment and natural community. Good news: yards which incorporate native plants can be both beautiful and beneficial, even becoming Monarch Waystations. Ms. Simpson sows some ideas on how to create a wildlife-friendly garden at your own home for the enjoyment of your family and the benefit of your community. Transform your yard into a beautiful, pollinator paradise!
Ms. Simpson is a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Houston Law Center, where she teaches Lawyering Skills and Strategies. She is a spring 2016 recipient of the University of Houston Teaching Excellence Award (Instructor/Clinical category); one of three 2018 AALS Teachers of the Year selected by the Law Center; and the 2017, 2018, and 2019 Student Bar Association Professor of the Year for Law Center faculty teaching in the part-time program.
