Wednesday sessions will explore landscapes designed for pollinator support including corridor ecology, pollinator habitat, and more. How can our landscape designs and our practices result in improved pollinator and other beneficial insect populations? Learn the latest research and find new information to help you prepare your landscapes for the future. Choose from two educational tracks:

Thursday sessions in three separate tracks provide insightful explorations of landscape design, land care practices, and current hot topics.
