Masks are still required for everyone (except the speakers while they present) while indoors at all times. Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments will be given outside, and masks will not be required during those times. We also ask that you please:

· Stay at home if you or others in your household are feeling unwell.

· Avoid direct contact with others, including handshakes and hugs at the event. Try an elbow bump! 🙂


Demand for native meadows, particularly as an alternative to lawn, is increasing dramatically. That said, few planting types are more misunderstood, with many failures resulting from inadequate planning and the use of poorly adapted plants. Far better results can be obtained when the plants and processes used reflect the ecological character of our naturally occurring meadow communities. More than one-year wonders, meadows modeled on these ecosystems can provide long-term, easily managed landscapes that harbor a myriad of wildlife and provide color and texture throughout the year.

This in-person, all-day program will include indoor & outdoor components. Landscape Designer Larry Weaner will discuss the design, implementation, and management of native meadows. Landscape Designer Jenna Webster will explore important yet often lesser-known aspects of wildlife-sensitive meadow design and management methods, with an emphasis on birds and pollinators that rely on native meadow vegetation.
