    Speaker: Tama Wong

    Tama Wong will talk about gardening in the Anthropocene, a time of change and where the imprint of human activity has reached all corners of the earth. She will make a case for wild gardens, managed for diversity and resilience, but not manicured control. The wild garden becomes a place not only to enjoy, but also to harvest weeds and intentional plantings for cooking, flower arrangements, teas, and celebrations.

    THE IN PERSON OPTION IS FULL. YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THE ZOOM OPTION TO GET THE ZOOM LINK. We can accommodate 300 people in Zoom. This Presentation will NOT be recorded.

    In Person Location IS FULL. Environmental Center at Glenstone, Potomac

    Trying to put the "B" back in BMP (Best Management Practices): Common Practices for Managing Stiltgrass. By Art Gover

    How invader removal method affects native plant response. By Luke Flory

    YOU MUST REGISTER IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THE ZOOM LINK

    We can accommodate the first 300 people who enter the Zoom meeting at the meeting time. After you register, you will receive a registration confirmation email with a link to the Zoom meeting. Registering does not guarantee a space in the Zoom meeting. 

    GOVER: Art will apply his decades of research and operational experiences managing invasive plants to stiltgrass and provide recommendations on methods that work best in various situations. FLORY: Luke will discuss his research on the effects of various invasive plant removal methods on native plant restoration.

    GOVER: Art conducted vegetation management research and outreach at Penn State for 35 years in row crop, roadside and utility, turfgrass, and natural area settings. This included 15 years working the PA State Park system to develop a statewide planning template, and park-level plans and implementation. He started a part-time commercial operation in 2008 specializing in invasive species planning and management, and in retirement does this full-ish time (foolish time?). FLORY: Luke’s research focuses on the mechanisms and impacts of non-native plant invasions with the goal of understanding long-term consequences of interactions between invasive species and other potential global change drivers such as climate change, fire, and emerging pathogens. The Flory Lab explores both basic and applied questions in systems such as the highlands of Galápagos, coffee agroecosystems in Costa Rica, eastern deciduous forests in the US, and pine forests and managed systems in Florida.

    Zoom opens at 7:00PM for pre-program board update and member Q&A. Presentations begin at 7:30PM and generally run until 8:45PM.

    9:00 Check-in

    9:30 Evidenced-based Ecological Landscaping Approaches with Native Plants - Karin T. Burghardt, Assistant Professor, University of Maryland College Park, Department of Entomology

    Humans actively manage and alter the majority of earth's habitats. In this presentation, Dr. Karin Burghardt outlines ways that decisions within one's own personal scope of management (gardens, yards, parks, and other green spaces) alter plant/insect interactions particularly the successful completion of insect life cycles. Further, Dr. Burghardt suggests tweaks that can be made to practices such as native plant selection, vegetational complexity, yard care, and pest management to retain biodiversity and function in the spaces we inhabit everyday.

    Dr. Karin Burghardt is an Assistant Professor in the Entomology Department at the University of Maryland and a Research Associate at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. Trained as a community ecologist, she specializes in understanding plant-insect interactions in human-modified landscapes ranging from suburban yards to abandoned agricultural fields to managed forests. By examining how human management practices alter the support of biodiversity in these spaces, the lab’s research program helps determine best practices for how humans can share space with a variety of flora and fauna.

    Karin received her M.S. and PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Yale University working with Oswald Schmitz on herbivore-induced defenses in goldenrod plants. Prior to that she received a B.S. from the University of Delaware in 2007 working with Douglas Tallamy on the role of non-native plants in ecosystems. Find more information on the lab’s work on her website.

    10:45 Climate Resilient Gardening - Pru Foster, PhD, Maryland Native Plant Society

    As human driven climate change accelerates, rain and temperature patterns in our gardens are changing. This impacts frost dates, water table levels, soil health, pollinators, and plant pests and diseases. Knowing how to successfully garden in this changing environment may seem overwhelming, but eco-friendly practices actually go a long way to resolving this dilemma. In this talk, Dr. Foster will explain how Maryland’s climate may evolve and practices to promote a resilient ecosystem in our gardens, now and into the future.

    Pru Foster has a diploma in Horticulture from the Royal Horticultural Society in the UK, similar to a Master Gardener certification, and one in garden design from the Garden Design School of Bristol Botanic Garden. She currently serves on the board of the Maryland Native Plant Society as secretary and is assistant editor for their publication Marilandica. She is also active in her local garden club and Wild Ones chapter, as well as stewarding her one acre lot for wildlife and beauty.  

    Pru has a PhD in astrophysics, but spent most of her paid career working on the impacts of climate change on ecosystem distributions and biodiversity. She was a co-author on some of the very first papers linking climate change to a species extinction - a rather depressing honor.  Pru has also been a life long activist working in areas like great ape rights, sustainable lifestyle choices, voting, and most recently, native plants.  She is author of “A Drop of Grace: Finding and Protecting our Common Ground” - a call to all to embrace low impact choices. She writes a monthly sustainable choices newsletter, “A Prudent Lifestyle”, which is available for free at prufoster.substack.com  

    11:45 Lunch

    12:45 Controlling Invasive Plants - Judy Fulton, Principal, EcoPlant Consulting and Vice President, Maryland Native Plant Society

    Biodiversity is crucial for the survival of life on earth as we know it, but a third of U.S. native plants are headed toward extinction, and two-fifths of our ecosystems are at risk of collapse. Worldwide, 60% of plant and animal extinctions have been partially or completely due to invasive species. In this talk, Judy Fulton will describe how invasive plants are so successful at taking over, the damage they cause, and how to manage them. Come hear how we can all help native plants in Maryland's natural areas and in our own backyards.

    Judy Fulton, founder of EcoPlant Consulting, believes healthy ecosystems are crucial for human survival. She transforms places overrun by invasives into native landscapes, shares her knowledge via workshops and field trips, and serves as an expert in invasive plant litigation. Judy is Vice President of the Maryland Native Plant Society and a member of the Board of the Mid-Atlantic Invasive Plant Council. She has earned a Harvard MBA and three Maryland’s Top 100 Women awards from the Daily Record.

    Because she is passionate about natives and healthy natural communities, Judy is active in promoting native species and in fighting invasive species. During the 2023 Maryland legislative session, she worked with the Sierra Club on a number of bills and was pleased to see the Maryland Native Plants Program signed into law. Currently, she is working on proposed Maryland invasive plant legislation. Her consulting, her co-authoring Plant Invaders of Mid-Atlantic Natural Areas, Field Guide, and her lead role in creating the Mid-Atlantic Invaders Tool, an online guide to more than 900 invasive species, have positioned Judy as a sought-after advisor in ecorestoration.

    2:00 Cultivating Place: Returning Natives to Your LandscapeLinda Kramer & John Totten, Landscape Consultants and Woodland Plant Nursery Owners

    Western Maryland, although small in size, contains a wonderful diversity of plants and habitats. Mountain bogs and swamps as well as one of the hottest driest habitats in the Mid-Atlantic mix with more familiar fields and forests.  Translating this abundance into your own landscape can be a fascinating journey.  Join us as we take a hands-on look at using native plants to invoke the special places that surround us.

    Linda and John own both a landscape gardening firm and a woodland plant nursery and have been active in native plant education and conservation for many years. John holds a Master's Degree in Forest Ecology from the University of Michigan and Linda received a Master's in Education from Penn State. They have taught classes on native plants, community ecology, propagation and horticulture for Penn State, Chatham University and Phipps Conservatory. In addition, they have consulted on native plant projects for the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Chatham University, Pittsburgh Zoo, and Fallingwater.
