Ecosavvy Symposium: Cultivating Biodiversity in the Home Garden

February 18, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

At this symposium, you will be presented with the latest information on the importance of biodiversity. As Claudia Thompson, naturalist and ecologist of Grow Native Massachusetts reminds us,

“As development displaces habitat, and the earth becomes increasingly unbalanced with the effects of the loss of biodiversity, we bear greater individual responsibility for stewarding our own backyards. We need to change the paradigm that conservation occurs only in select areas such as wildlife preserves, and realize that our lives are inextricably interwoven with nature.” (Garden Design, Spring 2016)

The EcoSavvy Symposium is now OPEN for registration. Please see the attached flyer or go to http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/parktakes
