Hi, plant folks!
Mark your calendars for a one day native plant-packed educational symposium. On October 11, 2013, at Delgado Community College, with a field trip and afternoon social event hosted at the lush atmosphere of Longue View Gardens
Doug Tallamy, Phd., will visit with us and share his wisdom. Dr. Tallamy is an entomologist, Chair of the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware. He is has written the highly acclaimed book, Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants. Its a book that no gardener should be without. In fact, every patriotic American should read this wonderfully insightful and well written book. It will change the way you see your natural world. Doug is brilliant scientist, a much sought-after lecturer and an all-around good guy. This symposium is sure to be a great forum for learning more about designing with and using native plants. And I am so very happy to say that Dr. Tallamy is the symposium key note speaker.
There will be a stellar list of other local and regional experts who will fill three panel sessions, with the topics of native plants and their relation to water management. There will be three experts leading groups to three different native plantings in the immediate area in the afternoon, after the educational sessions.
The symposium is being hosted by Colleen Morgan and the Bayou Rebirth crew, a very active local non-profit group who will join with Delgado Community College Horticulture Department to graciously sponsor this event
