SG-W:/ Native Plant Workshop

Enviro-Mich message from Cynthia Price <timrcd@iserv.net>

Would like to announce the following which West Michigan Region
Environmental Network initiated 8 long years ago -- in the past couple of
years we've seen an enormous increase in interest and awareness. Since the
beginning, however, people have come from all over the state.

This year for the first time we're including information aimed at planners
and community people who deal with stormwater, public landscape, and other
issues. Dublin, Ohio, has a program to return native ecosystems to their
community and works with developers to ensure it happens:
