This year’s Where Ecology Meets Economy! hosted by the Southeastern Wisconsin Invasive Species Consortium Inc (SEWISC) and Johnson’s Nursery, Inc™ will be held on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at the Boerner Botanical Gardens in Hales Corners, Wisconsin.
It is a forum to bring together Green Industry Professionals (nurseries, landscape architects, arborists, contractors) and Land Management Professionals (restorationists, natural area managers, environmental educators, conservationists) to share and to learn from from each other and forum speakers. The goal is for attendees to develop working relationships which should lead to opportunities to help improve the state of our ecological communities.
