June 16 Meeting

Thursday, June 16, The Balance of Design and Nature

Michael A. Herrenbruck will discuss the importance of design and the replication of nature in the urban setting. He tells us that good design brings back harmonious aspects to the natural landscape.

Mike grew up in rural Port Washington, Wisconsin. Growing up surrounded by the natural world, it only made sense that he inevitably gravitated toward a career related to nature. Having 10 years’ experience in the landscape horticultural field and an associate degree in landscape horticulture from Milwaukee Area Technical College, Michael is currently starting his sixth year as co-owner of Eco Harmony Landscape & Design, LLC. He currently lives in the Mequon area with his wife Jaimie. In his spare time he enjoys taking advantage of all the natural areas surrounding the metro Milwaukee area through hiking, photography and exploring inspirational ecosystems in order to achieve continued success implementing natural design. The program is free and open to the public.

For more information, call (815) 332-3343.
