"Garden as if life depended on it." -- Doug Tallamy
The symposium will feature keynote speaker, Douglas Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home, and Bart O’Brien, Director of the Regional Parks Botanic Garden and the co-author of Reimagining the California Lawn.
The insect Armageddon, the collapse of the western Monarch butterfly, The Sixth Extinction—we are losing species at an alarming rate. Contributors to this crisis include invasive species, the ubiquitous European lawn, non-native landscapes and the loss of wild areas.
Landscape professionals and home gardeners can act to turn this trend around. This one-day symposium shows you how to be part of the solution.
