Where Ecology Meets Economy

 A Forum for Green Industry & Land Management Professionals

Don’t miss this annual opportunity to network with land managers, nurserymen, arborists, landscape architects and many other professionals.  This amazing and innovative series features presentations, panel discussions and guided tours discussing ways the green industry and land managers can benefit each other and our native plant and animal communities.

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

Each full-day event features expert presentations about ways the Green Industry and Land Managers can work together for mutual benefit.  A topical panel discussion and educational tours are also scheduled.
