Ever thought about teaching a class or workshop about some aspect of native plants or native habitats? Or maybe you just have an idea for a topic that you would like to know more about?
We have allocated 16 time slots of 45 minutes each at our upcoming fall symposium in Huntsville on November 3-4. We’re inviting our members and the public to fill these slots with workshops to share knowledge about some aspect of native plants or native habitats.
A workshop may be “hands-on” or it may be a presentation. Topics can run the gamut from planting and propagation, research, pollinators, landscaping designs, nature photography, to resource conservation, and restoration, just to name a few topics. A few slots will be reserved for best practices for chapter management, such as outreach, membership development, holding a plant sale, or financial management.
If you would like to lead a workshop send an email to our coordinator Pam Middleton about your proposal. Include the following information:
- Name of the presentation.
- In a few sentences, explain “what participants will learn.”
- What kind of equipment will you need? (powerpoint, projector, screen, etc.)
- Include a brief bio to help promote your workshop.
If you can’t lead a presentation but have an idea for a topic or for some other aspect of the symposium send our coordinator your suggestion. We’re also looking for volunteers to help with field trips and other aspects of planning and managing the symposium.
