Jordan Secter, Principal




Jordan Secter founded Secter Environmental Design (SED) to provide landscape design and planning services that contribute to the aesthetics, function and sustainability of site and area ecology. SED uses a collaborative process to bridge conservation and recreation program development though environmental planning, ecological restoration, natural area facilities design, natural play and interpretive planning, and design. Jordan has worked with public and private clients in Canada and the United States, and whether he is working on a small site with a single client, groups of children in a schoolyard, or in a watershed with multiple stakeholders, SED encourages a collaborative process through which people can participate in exploring their relationships to the landscape.
