Lehigh County Extension Native Plant Identification Workshop Sept. 8, 15

Lehigh County Extension is sponsoring a workshop for landscape, nursery and gardening professionals on the identification and use of native plants September 8 and 15 at the Pool Wildlife Sanctuary in Emmaus, Pa.
With more and more landscape and gardening customers asking about native plants it is important for landscape and gardening professionals to have the latest information available.
In this two-day course, participants will concentrate on trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants considered native to Southeastern Pa and on providing practical information on plants readily available in the nursery trade and new plants to propagate.
The instructor for the course is Dr. David Sanford, Professor of Horticulture, Penn State University. The program fee is $70, which includes lunches and handouts. The deadline for registration is September 1.
