We had a great tour yesterday in the Blomquist. The "Walk on the Wild Side" focused on cold weather adaptations that allow plants, native or otherwise, to survive the winter months. Thanks to the folks who came out for their great questions. The January class/tour will focus on winter interest in the native plant garden. See you January 7th at the Blomquist gatehouse at 11:00.

Now, for something completely different...
I'll be giving a presentation at the 2010 Cullowhee Native Plants Conference. The topic will focus on conservation education at botanic gardens with an emphasis on what we've done in the Blomquist Garden as well as our community outreach work to connect the public with native plants and habitats. I feel honored to be given the chance to speak to this topic, as it's one that is near and dear to my heart. If you've never been to the conference, and have an interest in native plant horticulture and conservation, consider attending. You can learn more at this link. See you soon.
