Join us for a virtual half-day workshop for landscape professionals and the general public. Learn about landscaping with native plants using the real world example of the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center. We transformed the center with our native demonstration gardens. Hear from the experts how it was done from concept to sourcing the best plants to troubleshooting pests and other issues, like Spotted Lanternfly and powdery mildew.
