2018 Ecological Plant Conference

Please join me for the 2018 Ecological Plant Conference this December at BBG!

As you recall, this is a new NYC conference dedicated to providing horticultural, ecological, and anthropological plant information at a much deeper level than is often presented at conferences. The hope is that they cover just a few plants, but cover them in great detail. We’ve had a couple of bumps in the road in past years providing the quality of information we aim to. But as you will see from this year’s lineup, that is all in the past! We could not be more thrilled for the stellar speakers next month.

They will all be amazing but I’m particularly excited for Carol Gracie’s talk on Summer Wildflowers, the topic of her upcoming book. If you’re familiar with her last book, Spring Wildflowers of the Northeast, you will understand why.

Please let all your plant friends know and I hope to see you there!
