Georgia Native Plant Society Annual Symposium
Each year the Georgia Native Plant Society hosts a full day of learning on and around the subject of the native plants of Georgia. Attendees of GNPS symposia enjoy a unique opportunity to learn more about like-minded organizations around our state as well as have questions answered live by our native plant experts from across Georgia. Several distinguished speakers present over the course of this one day event to both educate and empower all attendees. We look forward to meeting you at the next symposium. GNPS symposia are always open to both members and non-members of the Society.
