Long Island Native Plant Symposium March, 11, 2011

The Long Island Native Grass Initiative presents its first annual native plant symposium Opportunities and Challenges of Working with Native Plants. This full day symposium will focus on the advantages of ecotypic (genetically local) native plant applications in ecological restorations, native plant production and landscaping.  Plant propagators, land managers, supervisors, government agencies, non-profit organizations, landscape architects, landscapers, nursery professionals and gardeners are all encouraged to attend.

The Long Island Native Grass Initiative (LINGI) is a cooperative effort of over 30 non-profit organizations, governmental agencies, nursery professionals and citizens.  LINGI’s mission is to preserve the genetic integrity of Long Island’s native plants by providing ecotypic seed and plant materials for commercial ecotypic plant propagation, fostering a demand for such plants and increasing the awareness of the importance for the use of ecotypes in the landscape.
