Urban Forest Initiative Tree Week Sustainable Urban Landscape Symposium

 

Description

The Symposium invites landscapers and the general public for a morning of presentations and an afternoon of urban field trips. Our speakers will address the aesthetics of naturalistic landscape design, the biology of native plant gardening, the rules for transforming a patch of turf grass into a planting area, and mosquito control methods that are safe for garden wildlife.  In the afternoon, participants will choose from a list of field trip destinations. We will discuss the removal and control of invasive plants at McConnell Springs and will offer guided tours to a number of established public and private native plant gardens. The Symposium is sponsored by the Lexington Chapter of Wild Ones Native Plants/Natural Landscapes. Pre-registration is highly recommended: Wild Ones members: $40, non-members: $50, all registrations at the door: $60. The registration fee includes breakfast and lunch. CEUs for landscape professionals will be announced.
