Join us during this webinar to learn more about how your garden can enhance its biodiversity and conservation goals. Gardens worldwide engage in biodiversity and conservation work through wild collecting trips, preserving specimens in herbaria and seed banks, championing research programs to learn about at-risk plants, and protecting and propagating native plants throughout their region as well as in their own gardens. Beatriz Maruri-Aguilar from Cadereyta Regional Botanic Garden, Damon Waitt from North Carolina Botanic Garden, and Silvia Alvarez Clare from The Morton Arboretum will present on biodiversity and conservation initiatives at their gardens. Each of the presenting gardens received recognition through our Sustainability Index for their extraordinary biodiversity and conservation work. 

The webinar portion is 1 hour and 15 minutes, with an option to join a 45 minute "Sustainability Insights" session to engage in small group conversation and receive advice on your biodiversity and conservation goals from the presenting speakers and IrisBG.

Webinar cost: $15/members, $30/non-members.

There is no additional charge for the Sustainability Insights sessions but it is limited to 25 participants; first come, first serve!

This webinar series has been generously sponsored by IrisBG.
