Join native plant enthusiasts on October 5 and 6 at Lauritzen Gardens in Omaha, Nebraska. The Heartland Native Plant Summit will explore innovative ways native plants can be used to craft landscapes that are beautiful, sustainable, and naturally resilient to drought.
Come to Glenwood for this presentation by Jim Locklear, Director of Conservation at Lauritzen Gardens Botanical Center. He will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the conservation program of Lauritzen Gardens. This work includes studies of endangered plants in Nebraska and the Great Plains, efforts to nurture the environmental health of the lands and plantings of Lauritzen Gardens, and the recent creation of a Conservation Discovery Garden.
Join Alan Branhagen, director of operations at Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, and author of Native Plants of the Midwest, for a review of native plants for every niche of the garden. Learn which natives to grow to best suit your conditions, and get ideas on how to use natives to create a functional and beautiful landscape. The cafe will be open to purchase dinner prior to the lecture and a complimentary dessert reception and booksigning will follow. https://shop.lauritzengardens.org/product-p/ed-summersolstice-2019.htm
