GreenScapes Symposium

February 18 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

$45 – $2022

Join us for a fascinating day of presentations highlighting design strategies that make it easier and more effective to integrate native plants into a variety of landscapes.

Gardening for wildlife and designing landscapes that mimic nature are being embraced by homeowners and design professionals alike. But leveraging native plants for specific environments and design outcomes can often be challenging.

Obstacles can range from tough site conditions to urban gardens with limited space for creating beneficial ecosystems. How can we protect the function and structure of the natural ecology by substituting natives for invasive species?

Learn exciting and novel uses of plants, planting design, and application of ecological principles to overcome these roadblocks and achieve high-impact, environmentally sustainable designs.

This will be offered as a series of live online lectures using Zoom with audience Q&A incorporated into the program. Each session will be recorded and a link to watch the symposium will be emailed to all participants.

Cost: $45 per person until January 7, 2022; $55 per person after January 8, 2022
