Native Plant Symposium

February 6, 8:45 am - 3:30 pm

Native Plant Symposium

$65 General Admission, $58.50 Members

 

 

Growing and protecting native plants are important for many reasons: they celebrate our state and region, they are well suited to our region’s growing conditions, and they are the foundation of the complex ecosystem that supports insects, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals. Native plants can be tough, beautiful garden plants for your home landscape as well as delicate harbingers of the changing season. Join us this year as we explore the lightly forested landscapes called woodlands where sunlight is relatively plentiful, soil moisture is low, and plant diversity is high. Learn about the plants that thrive in woodlands (and woodland gardens) and the efforts to protect and restore these disappearing habitats.
