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.

Please see the attached flyer for more information on speakers and topics covered!

Topics Covered:

  • Learn the importance and impact of multi scale site analysis and its influence on planting design.
  • Learn how planting and habitat design can feed the web of pollinators, insects, migrating and resident birds on a small scale while enhancing a larger regional ecosystem.
  • Illustrate how careful plant selection and design can create habitat while creating spaces for interpretive and educational programming areas
  • Learn about proper species selection from nurseries and why locally grown matters!
  • Learn about transplanting risks at different times of the year
