Wow. Just wow! Listen to this symposium lineup. Larry Weaner, author of one of the most important garden books in the past decade, Garden Revolution: How  Our Landscapes Can Be a Source of Environmental Change, will be speaking at the CZBG’s Native Plant Symposium.  Arguably, the only other recent book with potentially greater impact has been Doug Tallamy’s Bringing Nature Home. It’s a shame we couldn’t get him. But, wait. We did get him! Doug Tallamy will also be speaking! But good things always come in threes, so why not another author and native-plant-world giant? Maybe somebody like Larry Mellichamp? Or, why not him? Yep. Him too. Are you kidding me? Then what? Does it matter? Well, our good friend from Mesker Park Zoo, Paul Bouseman, will give a talk on native landscaping in the ‘burbs. Paul is a humorous, likeable, and incredibly knowledgeable speaker. We still have a few slots to fill, but, really, why? Isn’t this enough? But we’ll announce them soon. $99, includes zoo admission, parking, and a full day of food and drink. Even a social hour afterwards.
