Native Plants Symposium 2019

Thanks to a generous grant provided by the Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust, the first annual Native Plants Symposium will take place at Huntsville Botanical Garden in September. This symposium is geared toward enthusiastic environmentalists, whether research-driven or those with a general interest, and it promises to be a great place to meet potential customers, clients, supporters, and volunteers.  The program will also provide several opportunities for attendees to spend time with the speakers, exhibitors, and vendors (see schedule below).
