More than 220 attendees came to the 2017 GNPS Symposium held in Macon, Georgia to spend a day with like-minded people and learn more on the subject of native plants.  Our guest speakers, the participants and the vendors experienced a well organized and coordinated event, held for the first time ever at a middle Georgia location.  The running theme from under the ground on up tied all presentations together over the course of the day.  This way everyone came away with an all around understanding of the diverse native plant communities so firmly rooted in the geology and ecology of our state.

We thank all those who made the trip to join us at the symposium and took the time to complete our feedback survey at the end of the day.  People came from as far south as St. Catherines and as far north as Rabun County.  Year over year GNPS strives to improve our symposium event and will incorporate all suggestions as we prepare for our next symposium in February 2018.  Let us know if you’d like to join the committee – many hands always make light work.

Looking forward to seeing you in 2018 :)
