Calling all gardens in Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina! Our upcoming Sentinel Plant Network training for the Southeastern Region is scheduled for March 24th and 25th at Donald E. Davis Arboretum in Auburn, Alabama. As a member garden of the Sentinel Plant Network, your organization will be eligible to send two staff members to participate in this workshop. There is no registration fee and we will reimburse your organization for their transportation expenses + one night of lodging! Joining the Sentinel Plant Network is free for members of the American Public Gardens Association.

During the workshop: 

  • Attendees will learn how to interpret signs and symptoms of different kinds of plant pests and diseases and work more efficiently with diagnosticians and regulatory officials to stop serious threats.
  • We will debut new Sentinel Plant Network resources for front line horticulturists and plant health care professionals including scouting alerts, monitoring checklists, identification aids and train-the-trainer materials. 
  • The workshop will include an overview of the program's educational outreach materials and guidance on how to integrate them into your garden.
