Fall planting season is upon us. Learn from Garden Plant Propagation Manager, Heather Wehnau, about how to maximize available rebates and incentives when converting your thirsty lawn to drought tolerant native plants. We will discuss local and state rebates and incentives, local planning resources, sourcing supplies, what is covered by the various rebates and what is excluded. This discussion will give you a primer on which steps you need to take before you put a shovel to your turf, so you don't exclude yourself from eligibility. This is the perfect session for homeowners planning an upcoming landscape project, or for landscapers who want to know what's available to their clients.

Please pre-register for this free class. Admission is not required to attend.
