FREE Native Plant Session

We are concluding the Symposium with a special “Phytophthora Detections in Native Plant Nurseries and Restoration Sites” session on Thursday, June 23, 2016 from 2:15 to 5:00 p.m. Presentations will include an update of lab results from the CA Department of Food and Agriculture and talks on the actions that restoration and nursery managers have taken to respond to detections. Several years of work will be summarized with time for discussion in the late afternoon.

These afternoon talks are being sponsored by Working Group for Phytophthoras in Native Habitats and are FREE of charge for any attendees coming in just for the session. Registration is still required: simply enter your information as requested, select only the free Thursday afternoon session from the list of individual options, and ignore the payment page that appears after you've submitted your information.
