Landscapes and the Natural Environment

This session will explore the variety of research opportunities and careers outside the walls of the museum and the heritage attraction, to highlight innovative and exciting work in landscapes, gardens and natural environment. It will discuss projects that engage audiences and researchers with natural heritage, explore the potential for interdisciplinary research, and outline audience motivations for visiting the great outdoors.
