Learn about the latest science on pollinators and the importance of native plants from two fantastic speakers at the first Habitat Hero workshop of 2019! 

Our first keynote speaker, Scott Hoffman-Black, is the executive director of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. Scott will discuss the latest science on pollinators, their importance, decline, and what we can all do to help. 

Our second speaker, Ross Shrigley, is the executive director of Plant Select in Fort Collins, CO. He is responsible for directing, managing, and promoting the Plant Select program and its mission to be the country’s leading brand of plants designed to thrive in high plains and inter-mountain regions. He will discuss the Plant Select program and how it relates to native plant varieties and native pollinators.

The afternoon will be a hands-on workshop in which you will learn how to winter sow native seeds that need cold weather to successfully sprout in the spring. You will create your own container of planted native seeds to take home and set outside for the winter.

Registration is $20, plus the ticket processing fee, and includes lunch and all materials.
Register early; there are only 75 seats available!
