Due to concerns regarding Covid-19, we have canceled our native plant symposium

Our Native Giants: The Role of Trees in the Landscape

2020 Native Plant Conference
August 22, 2020 - 9am

Due to recent mandates on social distancing set forth by federal, state and local government officials, it is with deep sadness that we announce the cancellation of our Annual Native Plant Symposium.

Once a year, gardeners, landscape designers, horticulturalists and plant lovers gather at the Southern Highlands Reserve to learn about gardening with plants that are native to the Southern Appalachian Mountains. The annual Native Plant Symposium is the Reserve’s principal educational event for the year, featuring nationally-recognized native plant experts who support our mission to educate others on the importance of native plant conservation and preservation.

Online registration will open July 15! Early bird registration for Sustainers and Sponsors will begin July 1.
