Landscaping with Colorado Native Plants Conference February 29, 2020
Over the last four years Denver Botanic Gardens, Butterfly Pavilion, CSU Extension, Front Range Wild Ones, High Plains Environmental Center, and Colorado Native Plant Society have collaborated to host a Landscaping with Colorado Native Plants Conference.
Each year this conference has sold out weeks in advance of the program and that is already happening with our 2020 event! Our past success has convinced us, more than ever, that there is growing interest in native plants and preserving Colorado’s unique biodiversity and character.

The conference will feature leading experts in design, propagation, and gardening with native plants. Our keynote speaker will be Scott Hoffman Black, Executive Director, Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, author of Insect Apocalypse? What Is Really Happening, Why it Matters and How Native Plants are a Vital Part of the Solution.
