    Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens
    3400 Vine Street
    Cincinnati, OH 45220

    Keynote speaker will be David Mizejewski, the National Wildlife Federation’s media personality. He has appeared on too many national news, late night, and talk shows to mention, and has been rocking the native plant symposium circuit. We’re proud to bring him to Cincinnati.

    John McGee is an acclaimed landscape designer who works in the D.C. area, primarily with native plants. He is also co-host of the Native Plant Podcast.

    Bill Barnes is considered the geniuses’ genius in top plant circles. He will talk about the potential of native plants to enter the general horticultural market.

    The Zoo’s Brian Jorg will discuss the role of public gardens in conservation.

    We’ll also be featuring Meg Hanrahan, who is wrapping up production on a PBS documentary about legendary local plant pioneer, Lucy Braun.

    Mark and Nan Plunkett, owners of a very fine suburban native garden, will talk about their garden and what it has meant to them
