Karen Clancy PLA, ASLA

Sr. Director for Landscape Design


Karen joined Natural Lands in 2016, adding her much-needed landscape architecture skills to our planning department. She has worked with native plants in many capacities, including design, sourcing, and growing.

On the job, she can’t live without mechanical pencils and a good calculator.

One of Karen’s proudest moments is when she brought her two daughters to a children’s garden to which she contributed, and watched them enjoy the space just as the design and construction teams had imagined and hoped for.

Karen holds a Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) from the Rhode Island School of Design and a certificate in construction management from Temple University. She is a Professional Landscape Architect (PLA).

Ask Karen about: gardening in small spaces (she’s a city dweller).
