Looking for a way to support your natural environment? Then you should attend the first Ohio Native Plant Conference, which runs Friday through Sunday at the Hope Hotel in Dayton. Guests will get the chance to learn more about the important role of our native plants and will have the opportunity to learn about subjects such as native landscaping, wildlife, wetlands and prairies through lectures from experts. Each day of the conference will feature a nationally recognized keynote speaker and local vendors will provide native food, plants, books, artwork and other items to help conference-goers understand and enjoy the benefits of going native. Also, on Saturday, there will be a native plant sale from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The cost to attend is $130 per person for all three days, which includes meals Saturday and Sunday. You can also register single days. A percentage of the proceeds will benefit the Beavercreek Wetland Association and the Marianist Environmental Education Center.
