Annual Learning Programs
Native Gardening Conference
Held every September at the Arboretum, the Native Gardening Conference promotes sustainable gardening practices and use of native plants in home landscapes. We inspire and inform gardeners, homeowners, and landowners to create and maintain native gardens or small-scale restorations on their own property. The program welcomes people with a range of interests and experience.
The Arboretum’s long-running Winter Enrichment series offers lectures for naturalists and community member in the greater Madison area. The nine-week series runs February to March. See the Winter Enrichment page for more information.
