POTENTIAL CEU OPPORTUNITY:
Cullowhee Native Plant Conference
Continuing Education credits can potentially be earned at this summer’s 30th annual Cullowhee Native Plant Conference. The date for this year’s conference, which is held every July at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, N.C., is July 17-20.
Some of the sessions at this year’s conference that would be of special interest to landscape architects include:
- Gardening with edible natives in a sustainable landscape
- Maintaining curb appeal with native plants
- Creating a garden of roadside wildflowers
- Breeding advances in Cercis candensis
- Native sedges and sedge-like plants in the residential garden
The conference also offers tremendous networking opportunities with other landscape architects, native plant nursery owners, other professionals, academics and students. The full conference agenda is available at: http://www.wcu.edu/7462.asp, and registration has just opened.
If you have any questions about the value of the conference to landscape architects, please contact Conference Steering Committee member and Durham, N.C. landscape architect Jesse Turner.
