The Hamilton College Arboretum Third Saturday series continues on Saturday, March 19, with professional landscape designer and garden writer Judy Nauseef K’73. She will present a lecture titled “Residential Garden Profiles” at 10 a.m. in the Kennedy Auditorium, Taylor Science Center. Nauseef will talk about the creation of some residential gardens and additional slides of some private gardens that she has visited around the country.
Nauseef studied literature and art at Kirkland College and journalism at Syracuse University before beginning the study of horticulture and landscape design. Her horticulture projects include an equal number of landscape designs for new constructions and renovations of existing gardens, on urban, suburban and rural lots. Nauseef’s areas of interest and experience include woody plants, perennial gardens, prairie and native landscaping and rain gardens and green roofs.
As an active and certified fellow of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD), Nauseef continues to increase her knowledge of plants, gardening and design through attending symposiums around the country, visiting gardens and meeting with other designers. She also served as a certification chair on the board of directors and president for the APLD. Nauseef is also a certified nursery professional for the Iowa Nursery and Landscape Association and a member of the Garden Writers Association.
Parking is available near the building. All Arboretum events are free and open to the public and everyone interested in gardens and landscapes is encouraged to attend. Pre-registration is not required.
