On October 11, Bayou Rebirth is hosting a one-day Native Plant Symposium on the benefits native plants bring to southeast Louisiana’s urban environment. This conference, to be held at Delgado Community College, will bring together a diverse group of professionals and community members to discuss the role of native plants in urban water management, wildlife habitat and resilience to climate change.
The morning agenda includes keynote speaker Dr. Doug Tallamy followed by three panel discussions on Engineering and Planning, Benefits of Native Plants and Local Action and Reaction. All Symposium attendees are invited to a complimentary reception put on by Longue Vue House and Gardens at the end of the day.
