Central Region Meeting of the American Conifer Society being held in Ames
We are fortunate to have the 2011 Central Region Meeting of the American Conifer Society here in Iowa on June 17-18. If you have an interest in conifers and want to learn more about cultivating these green beauties, this is a wonderful opportunity for you.
Iowa State Horticulture Department specialists, Jeff Iles and Richard Jauron will be featured speakers. In addition to featured speakers and educational sessions, the conference will include tours of seven local gardens. All of these gardens will highlight unique and beautiful conifers and will also demonstrate outstanding landscaping ideas for incorporating conifers along with other plants. Registering for the conference may be the only opportunity you will have for visiting some of these private gardens.
The conference also highlights other local gardens and places of interest as part of the pre and post conference tours. The Iowa Arboretum is please to be included in this list.
