News: Promoting Stewardship Through Education

 

November 17, 2017

The GCA keeps its members well-informed on current environmental stewardship issues, most recently through two national meetings attended by nearly 300 club members. Goals were to explore, learn from experts, and share knowledge back home with renewed enthusiasm and commitment. The Shirley Meneice Horticultural Conference, September 24-26 in Omaha, Nebraska, provided lectures and panel discussions on prairie restoration, midwestern soils, drought gardening, pollinator protection, seed saving and sharing, and stormwater management, among many other topics. The September 10-14 Conservation Study Trip to the southwestern shore of Lake Erie was an up-close look at wetland restoration, harmful algae blooms, and dam removal. Armed with knowledge and new ideas for protecting threatened natural resources, members returned to their clubs reinvigorated and better prepared to steward their communities.
