Mark your calendars now and plan to attend our first annual Great Lakes Autumn Expo on September 20, 2012. Hosted by Christensen’s Plant Center in Plymouth, MI, this event takes the place of our traditional Summer Field Day and is scheduled a month later to better accommodate both our members’ schedules and our Snow & Ice Summit.
This one-day workshop includes classroom instruction and field walks throughout the college campus. Classroom instruction will explore basic plant identification techniques for woody and herbaceous plants. The field walks will put those ID techniques to work on a variety of trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials.
This one-day workshop includes classroom and hands-on instruction about the foundations in plant science and techniques that guide pruning practice aesthetically and scientifically. An outdoor lab consists of a diverse group of plants for pruning practice to improve your pruning skills.
