We are looking forward to seeing you at the fall symposium in Nacogdoches on November 9 – 12! Catch up with your native plant pals at the Meet and Greet at Fredonia Brewery on Thursday evening. 

Field trips

Field trips are a favorite of the fall symposium! Check out the self-guided field trips on your way to and from the symposium. We have curated stops for you every direction. 

Friday morning Matt Buckingham will provide an overview of east Texas plant communities, to prepare you for a fascinating field trip that day. A fun reception is planned at the Fredonia Hotel once you return. Saturday is jam-packed with plenary and concurrent sessions, followed by a feast at the Awards Banquet. You do not want to miss this event!

Friday field trips are led by local experts – register soon to get your first choice.
