A Call for Presentations

The INC hosts are seeking speakers for this year’s annual meeting. In the past, presentation topics included overviews or updates from tribal nurseries, restoration efforts using native plants, native plant research projects, and conservation education efforts. If you or someone you know would like to present a topic, please contact Jeremy as soon as possible. Presentations will be held Tuesday and Wednesday morning (September 21 and 22).

Tour and Dinner

Tours are being planned for Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons (September 21 and 22). Tour stops include a visit to the BankSavers Nursery as well as other local restoration locations/attractions. Following Wednesday’s tour, the Stillaguamish Tribe will host a traditional-style dinner.

Nursery Training Workshop

Since the publication of the USDA Agricultural Handbook 730, Nursery Manual for Native Plants: A Guide for Tribal Nurseries, the INC has initiated the teaching of Nursery Training Modules taken directly from the manual. These modules cover content from the publication’s individual chapters, in addition to the latest information available since publication. The goal is to have each module taught by the chapter’s author, or co-author, as well as provide some hands-on learning. If you have any requests as to the Modules you would like to see covered this year, please let Jeremy Pinto know as soon as possible. The nursery training workshop will be held on Thursday, September 23.

Travel Grants

The USDA Forest Service has secured grant money to help pay travel and registration costs for individuals attending the INC nursery meeting. A limited number of grants are available and will be awarded to students and tribes with limited or no travel funds. Priority will be given to those tribes that have nurseries, or are in the planning stages of nursery development. Contact Jeremy to have a grant application sent to you.
