Crossroads at Big Creek is welcoming author, educator and landscape architect Darrel Morrison for a presentation, reception and book signing Sept. 30, 6:30 pm, at the Collins Learning Center. He’s spent his career creating – and helping people appreciate – vibrant, aesthetically pleasing, nature-based landscape designs.
Morrison is also no stranger to Door County. He first visited as a UW-Madison junior faculty member in 1970 and eventually returned every other year between 1973 and 2003 to teach a weeklong seminar at The Clearing. He credits Jens Jensen as one of his inspirations and is indebted to preservation work at The Ridges, Toft Point and Newport State Park.
Morrison has created designs for the UW-Madison Arboretum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, among other places. He’s taught landscape design at UW-Madison and the University of Georgia and now lives in Madison, where he’s an honorary faculty associate in the UW-Madison Department of Planning and Landscape Architecture.
