Green Roof Presentation

On Thursday May 13th there will be a meeting to discuss green roof possibilities and opportunities here in Madison.  I will be giving a brief presentation on native plants for green roofs among a series of presentations by experts in fields relevant to green roofs.  Following these presentations there will be time for Q&A and discussion. The event will be held at the Sequoya Branch Library starting at 6pm.  Refreshments will be provided.
