"Can't miss!" keynote speaker at UW Arboretum conference next weekend!

Next Sunday, September 19th the UW Arboretum will be hosting its annual Native By Design native landscaping conference.  I'm extremely excited to hear that this year's keynote speaker will be Doug Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home.  This is one of the most powerful and inspirational books I have ever read.  I place it up on the high mantel shelf along side the works of Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson and Edward Abbey.  This is a unique opportunity to hear Dr. Tallamy speak here in the midwest that should not be missed by anyone interested in natural areas management or landscaping with native plants.

The conference runs from 8:45 to 4:30 next Sunday.  In addition to Dr. Tallamy's keynote, there will be a tour of the Arboretum's own native plant garden and several other workshop sessions to choose from.  For more information, see the UW Arboretum's website.
