Where Ecology Meets Economy

 A Forum for Green Industry & Land Management Professionals

In partnership with Johnson’s Nursery, Inc. ™ we recently hosted another successful networking opportunity for land managers, nurserymen, arborists, landscape architects and many other professionals. This fifth event featured presentations, panel discussions, plus educational tours and workshops sharing ways the green industry and land managers can work together to realistically plan and execute restoration of our plant and wildlife communities. Speakers for the event included: Steven Apfelbaum, Dr. Timothy Ehlinger, Alice Thompson and Aaron Feggestad.

The purpose of the forum is to promote personal dialog between professional groups that have not traditionally shared their knowledge and experience. Each annual meeting continues the development of working relationships to create business opportunities and help improve the state of our ecological communities.

A big thank you to our sponsors!  Without their financial support this event would not be possible.
