Special Guest: Bill Schwarz, Frank Lloyd Wright Civic Center Architect

Our very special guest Bill Schwarz was there as the Civic Center lagoon and landscaping were being constructed in the ’60s. He will enlighten us as to this work, FLW’s vision for the Civic Center, and be able to answer any questions you might have about this historically recognized site.

GWC will also be updating you on our Floating Islands, which just got an upgrade this week on Oct. 4 with some new plants.

Biologic Floating Island with a tule mat weaving by Master TEK basketweaver Monique Sonoquie to hold additional plants in place. The high sides are to prevent ducks from eating plants before they get established. The island is now planted with reeds, sedges, marsh heliotrope and monkeyflower as well as new willow branches. As the plants grow, the roots will hold the island together, uptaking the excess nutrients from the water that otherwise fuel algal growth.

On Oct 14 we will also be discussing plans to remediate (clean up) the waters of the lagoon to make them safe and appealing.
