Conference & Symposia
Native Plants in the Landscape Conference at Millersville
The 27th Annual Native Plants in the Landscape conference was held June 6-9, 2018. The Native Plants in the Landscape Conference offered opportunities to learn from expert speakers, participate in educational workshops and exceptional field trips over the course of three days. A native plant sale was also held during this event. The purpose of the conference is:
- to increase the knowledge, propagation, cultivation, and use of native plants in the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions
- to promote methods of land management and design that respect “sense of place” by preserving and restoring native species and natural processes
- to engender an appreciation of regionally appropriate landscapes that are harmonious for people and nature.
While the subject of the conference pertains to native plant communities, the spirit of the conference is to build human communities among a broad range of participants by designing a conference affordable to all; encouraging formal and informal exchanges of information; and, providing opportunities for social interaction.
SAVE THE DATE: 28th Annual Native Plants in the Landscape Conference at Millersville University will be held June 5-8, 2019. More details will be available in early 2019.
