Eric Tamulonis focuses on planning and designing public parks and open spaces. His work includes national, state, city and community parks and open space systems in diverse urban and natural environments. Having worked in coastal, piedmont, Appalachian, tallgrass prairie, Great Lakes and other ecsystems, he is also committed to the value of diverse cultural heritage; his work expresses the ecological and cultural context that provides meaning and identity for the projects he leads.
Eric’s park and open space practice is complemented by work in institutional site development and campus master plans, and the detailed landscape design of streets, plazas and public gardens. He has lectured at national and international conferences on creating sustainable community open spaces, green campus master plans, and the use of physical design as a means to achieving environmental education. In addition to his project work, Eric is committed to leadership in the field of parks and open space, as a board member of the City Parks Alliance, steering committee member of the Pennsylvania Urban Parks and Recreation Alliance, member of World Urban Parks, and chair of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Design and Horticulture Advisory Committee.
