Webinar: Invasive Plant Control Without Chemicals

December 12 @ 4:00 pm EST - 5:00 pm EST
Free - 10$ 976 tickets left

Persistent, Relentless, Tenacious…such are the words we deploy to describe our nemesis weeds and invasive species. Invasive plant species colonize degraded landscapes and overtake native plants robbing the area of critical ecosystem services. These exotic plants spread rampantly when they are free of natural checks and balances found in their native range.  A handful of high-impact, aggressive non-natives affect soil health, biodiversity, and even land access. Who wants to hack their way through a tangle of unyielding multi-flora rose, common buckthorn, and…

Webinar: Transitioning to Ecological Landscape Practices – Toxin-Free Landscapes

January 17, 2018 @ 4:00 pm EST - 5:00 pm EST
Free - 10$ 999 tickets left

The reasons to remove toxic chemicals from our landscapes are many and many homeowners are seeking landscape professionals who can deliver healthier landscape options. However, too often clients give up on pesticide- and fertilizer-free landscapes because their expectations are not met, the results are not what they had in mind, or the process is confusing to them. How do landscape professionals educate, manage expectations, and keep a client’s trust during the transition? Edwina von Gal from Perfect Earth Project will…

Webinar: Invasive Plants: What Are They? And What Can Be Done?

January 24, 2018 @ 7:00 pm EST - 8:00 pm EST
Free 991 tickets left

What are invasive plant species and what harm do they do to an ecosystem? Invasive plant species are a threat to natural areas throughout the country. No habitat or region is immune from the threat of invasive species. They displace native plants, eliminate native food and cover for wildlife, and threaten rare plant and animal species. Nearly all landscapes, both private gardens and public spaces have become the unwelcome home to many invasives. Bruce Wenning, is an invasive plant specialist…

Webinar: Landscape Maintenance Practices for Native Bees

February 1, 2018 @ 4:00 pm EST - 5:00 pm EST
Free - 10$ 999 tickets left

Pollinators (including honey bees, native bees, birds, bats, butterflies, and other species) are essential to healthy ecosystems. Pollinators support the success and vigor of flowering plants, making ecosystems stronger, more resilient, and enhancing the environment for human populations. Decades of stressors (including the loss, degradation, and fragmentation of habitat, reduction in the number and quality of food sources, reduction in the availability of sites for breeding, nesting, and roosting, and improper use of pesticides and herbicides) have severely and adversely…

Webinar: Green Up for Clean Up: Planting to Remediate Contaminated Landscapes

February 7, 2018 @ 12:30 pm EST - 1:30 pm EST
Free - 10$ 999 tickets left

Presented by Kate Kennen When soil tests confirm the presence of site contaminants, cost-effective phytotechnology (phytoremediation) plantings can often be effective in mitigating on-site pollutants. These interactions are complicated, sometimes taking decades for remediation, and many times plant-based remediation strategies are not a good fit for environmental cleanup. Phytotechnology is the use of vegetation and their associated microbes to remediate, contain, or prevent contaminants in soils, sediments, and groundwater. The term ‘phytoremediation,’ where plants are used to remediate sites that are…

Webinar: Developing a Comprehensive Integrative Pest Management (IPM) Plan

March 19, 2018 @ 12:30 pm EST - 1:30 pm EST
Free - 10$ 999 tickets left

An Integrated Pest Management Plan (IPM) is a tool for plant professionals to control pests in a timely, safe, and efficient manner and is a vital component in producing and maintaining healthy plants and landscapes. An IPM plan includes several aspects: sanitation and prevention, conservation, and augmentation methods using beneficial organisms. Traditionally, IPM plans also include the judicious use of chemical pesticides when all else fails. In this webinar, Alexis will discuss the negative effects of chemicals on beneficial insects…
