Is your community association board dealing with erosion or flooding problems? Is your property management company paying to maintain a lot of lawn that is not being used? Is your landscaping committee looking for ways to beautify community property while supporting birds and butterflies?

Unused lawns. Impervious surfaces. Heavier rain storms. Invasive introduced plants. These are just some of the reasons for our degrading suburban and urban environments. But planting native plants can help address these problems while improving the overall beauty, sustainability, and ecology of our area.

In this Symposium, you’ll:

  • Start to develop a plan to upgrade your community’s green infrastructure

  • Learn about the role of native plants in sustainable landscape solutions

  • Learn about the resources available for investing in ecologically focused community projects

  • Learn how to work with your community bylaws, handbook, or committees to ensure successful projects

  • Hear success stories from local communities 

  • Wrap up the day by talking to a variety of experts in the field during the “Ask the Experts” postering session
