Are you interested in learning more about environmental ethics, or do you need ethics credits to renew your Landscape Architecture license? This course will address environmental ethics, including ASLA and APLD’s codes of Environmental Ethics, as well as Biblical writings about environmental ethics. Few people realize how strongly the Bible supports environmental stewardship, and many may not even know that ASLA and APLD have codes of ethics. Come learn more about both and be refreshed and encouraged as we are reminded by how greatly we can each impact our world for the better!
Speaker: Nathalie Shanstrom
Registered Landscape Architect, certified Naturalist, LEED certified
Owner/Designer, Pasque Ecological Design Group
Nathalie began working in sustainable landscape design in 1994 after graduating from Hope College with biology and chemistry majors. Before going back to school to earn a Master’s in Landscape Architecture, she earned a Naturalist’s certificate from Au Sable Institute of Environmental Studies, in Michigan. It was at Au Sable Institute, where environmental ethics is integrated into all the classes that are offered, that Nathalie’s interest in environmental ethics was ignited.
After finishing her Master’s degree in 1999, Nathalie enjoyed providing sustainable landscape architecture services at The Kestrel Design Group for many years and continues to consult with Kestrel periodically. She also had the privilege of designing landscapes for Energyscapes for a year. After Energyscapes closed its doors in 2016, Nathalie started Pasque Ecological Design so she could continue to do the kind of work she loves to do.
Pasque Ecological Design specializes in sustainable landscape architecture design services, including designs that emulate, restore, or preserve native plant communities; designs that draw out the regional beauty of native plant communities; sustainable stormwater management; edible gardens; healing gardens; and nature based classrooms and playgrounds. Clients include residential, commercial, public, and institutional clients, including, schools and faith based communities.
