2017 Cleveland Pollinator & Native Plant Symposium
8:00 AM - 4:30 PM
The Northeast Ohio community is invited to participate in a lively, full day program exploring the importance of increasing biodiversity and ecological resilience at the 2017 Cleveland Pollinator & Native Plant Symposium, to be held at the Mandel Humanities Center, Cuyahoga Community College Eastern Campus on Friday, September 22.

Seven regional and national experts will lead eight different sessions with a focus on increasing knowledge on the use of native plants, the care of pollinators such as butterflies and bees, and shifting traditional horticultural practices to designing landscapes for beauty, biodiversity, and ecological benefits—whether for a small backyard or corporate campus.

The 3rd annual symposium is open to homeowners, master gardeners, educators, landscape architects, designers, naturalists, and anyone eager to learn more about creating pollinator and wildlife habitats that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also form an ecologically valuable alliance.

Registration, information on speakers, topics and schedule is available at www.clevelandpollinatorsymposium.org. Questions? Contact Ann Cicarella, 216-337-2689
