19th Annual Conference
Native Plants & Natural Landscaping
January 24, 2015
8 AM to 4:15 PM
Oshkosh Convention Center
Wild Ones Fox Valley Area Chapter
Keynote: Dr. Stanley Temple
Aldo Leopold, Phenology and Climate Change
Keynote speaker, Dr. Stanley Temple will trace how the invaluable records Aldo Leopold kept of when plants bloomed, birds migrated, and other natural events occurred, paved the way to understanding how climate change is affecting our ecological community.
One lesson of Leopold’s journals is clear: For those who love nature and take time to observe it closely, keeping records enhances the enjoyment and value of our time and effort, both now and in the future.
Dr. Temple is the Beers-Bascom Professor Emeritus in Conservation at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For 32 years he held the academic position once occupied by Aldo Leopold.
Please join us to learn from Dr. Temple and native plants experts from around Wisconsin how we can apply Leopold’s lessons toward creating a healthy habitat in our own yards, whether those yards are urban, suburban, or rural.
