PRESENTER BIO

Eric Fuselier is an Environmental Scientist at Crafton Tull where he works with civil engineers, landscape architects, and their clients to select native plant species to be implemented in their projects’ design. Eric has been studying the practical applications of native plants for over a decade, and has 7 years of professional experience with implementing native plants in a variety of different types of projects. Eric is currently serving as the President of the Ozark Chapter of the Arkansas Native Plant Society.

PROGRAM SUMMARY

Eric will discuss the many practical advantages that using native species of vegetation has to offer over the use of non-natives. Eric will also discuss strategies for the wise use and implementation of native plant species for a variety of applications for which engineers and designers have traditionally relied on the use of non-native plant species. These applications include erosion control, slope stabilization, bioswales, detention ponds, and more.
