The committee for the Midwest Native Plant Conference might consider naming its next conference: "Who needs sleep? There is always something to do!"
|Black-lighting for moths was an unexpected bonus at the plant conference.|
This event goes over the top! One can expect great speakers and educational displays, a cross section of vendors which includes native plants, seeds, pottery (Go Black Kat!), photography, art, books, educational displays, and more books! This event keeps getting better and better. It is a flora-phile's dream come true.
Tim Snyder says,"Ohio's Natural Areas and Preserves need you!" Watch for volunteer opportunities in the near future. Working in preserves is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about Ohio plants.
|Dr. David Brandenburg cleared |
up our confusions on conifers.
Top-notch speakers: David Brandenburg, David Wagner, Marielle Anzelone, Ian Adams, and Jim McCormac- just to name a few.
It is hard to chose between all the afternoon speakers!
Field trips: afternoon, evening , morning and more! Gather out front folks, we are going again!
