The Indiana Native Plant and Wildflower Society (INPAWS) announces its 17th annual conference providing the know-how to help Hoosiers appreciate, grow, and conserve Indiana’s rich heritage of native plants.

Set for November 6, 2010, on the University of Indianapolis campus, the day-long conference will explore how the preservation of native plant species fosters biodiversity and maintains healthy ecosystems. INPAWS will engage the public in a conversation also emphasized by the United Nations, which has declared 2010 to be the International Year of Biodiversity.

Two keynote speakers are featured:
· Conservation biologist Carole Brown, who is compiling 20 years of experience with designing, installing, and maintaining wildlife gardens in a book to be titled Conservation Gardening and Sustainable Landscaping.
· Landscape architect Carolyn Summers, author of Designing Gardens with Flora of the American East, a book highly praised by native plant guru Dr. Doug Tallamy.

The conference will include a book signing and sale, vendor displays, and information on the Indiana Native Plant and Wildflower Society.

NPAWS members $60 ($50 before October 16); Non-members $75 ($65 before October 16); Students $35
