In connection with my article on landscaping with native plants, I thought I'd share this information I received from Susan Leroy for the following conference in Sacramento:

EcoLandscape Working Group (ELWG) is presenting EcoLandscape 2007: Ecological Landscapes for Sustainable Businesses. This conference will be held on Saturday,
February 3, 2007 at the Samuel Pannell Community Center in Sacramento.
Complete information on the conference is online at
I have also attached the flyer for the conference.

This event will build on the successes of the 2004 and 2005 conferences by
providing cutting-edge information on how to design, install, and maintain
landscaping in an environmentally-sound manner. Topics will address the
issues of water conservation, peak run-off reduction, soil enhancement,
weed management, storm water pollution, and pesticide and fertilizer
reduction. Highly-acclaimed speakers, combined with a mini-trade show of
innovative products and services, will help landscape professionals meet
the challenges of landscaping in the 21st century.

Speakers at the conference will discuss many of the topics covered in the
forthcoming “River-Friendly Landscaping Guidelines”, which is being funded
by the Sacramento County Stormwater Quality Program. The booklet should be
completed and available for free at the conference.

Please take a moment to visit to see our complete
program. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact
either me at the number below or Dave Roberts, ELWG chair, at 916-492-0393
or email at

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
