Preserve & Protect at the Botanical Gardens
Do you have big plans for this Saturday? Well if you are interested in preservation, the hot place to be is the Cleveland Botanical Gardens for their 2014 Sustainability Symposium. (And seriously, with weather like this, who wouldn’t like to warm up in their Glasshouse while watching the butterflies and dreaming of summer?!)
This year’s Symposium topic is “Preserve & Protect,” and will investigate a variety of wonderful preservation efforts across northeast Ohio. I’ll be hanging out with a booth, talking about the unique approach to preservation that we are taking with the Foxfield Preserve. There will also be a wonderful selection of guest lecturers covering topics from utilizing urban vacant lots, efforts surrounding the chestnuts trees of Ohio, revitalizing meadows with burn techniques, and urban watershed restoration. We’ll discuss topics for the large scale and backyard preservationist alike.
If you’re interested in going, get signed up in advance through the CBG website. And make sure to stop by and say “hello!”
