What

Learn about incorporating native trees and shrubs into your home landscape to create more resilient and sustainable ecosystems.  Presentations will address the critical roles these plants play and the benefits of designing landscapes with the needs of trees in mind.  We’ll then focus on how to select the native species that will thrive in your own backyard.  One-of-a-kind live demonstrations will be offered on proper planting techniques, mulching, pruning, soil improvements and much more.  Arboretum tours will highlight a variety of sustainable landscape features, including a newly expanded learning garden and a native tree propagation house.  The day will conclude with a native tree giveaway and a chance to hear more about The Dawes Arboretum’s Plant Clinic resource.

Non-member price includes a one year Sugar Maple membership.  Limited student spaces are available through Monday, July 9.  All others must register by Tuesday, July 31.
