  • Overview

    Join the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden at this year’s Annual Symposium as we celebrate the beauty and benefits of wild landscapes. Learn how reincorporating native plants in community and residential outdoor spaces, known as rewilding, invites migratory and native pollinators, helps preserve Iowa’s natural heritage, and builds healthy, rich soil. See website for Schedule!!

    • Hear from David Newsom, founder of the Wild Yards Project, an organization that aims to inspire a movement across the country to transform every yard into vital native habitat.
    • Learn from Dan Schutte, owner of Shoreview Natives, about native plant species that support transitioning residential and commercial outdoor spaces to pollinator-friendly, low-maintenance landscapes. 
    • Interact with a panel of our very own Greater Des Moines community members who have joined the rewilding effort.
