Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve
Dr. Mary Myers, a landscape architect and academic, will walk you through the transformation of her
own property: removing lawn, adding rain gardens, and planting native Piedmont plants to satisfy her
goals of creating a beautiful enclave with increased biodiversity and improved stormwater regulation
services. The garden described in this presentation was featured in the Home and Garden section of the
New York Times in 2014. An avid proponent of using ecological science as a basis for design, Mary
Myers, Ph.D. spearheaded development of the Temple University Master of Landscape Architecture
program with a concentration in Ecological Landscape Restoration.
