This year’s event will celebrate the native plants, animals, and habitats that make our region ecologically unique and indispensable.
We invite the community to join us in a weekend-long celebration of our unique corner of the world, starting with a line-up of speakers educating audiences on the important role that native species play in conservation. Another exciting opportunity will give attendees of all experience levels the opportunity to learn in nature, as they traverse local terrain in search of native birds on our morning birdwatching tours. This nature-themed celebration culminates in an event for all ages, with our Kids Day extravaganza, filled with live animal programs and hands-on learning opportunities.
We look forward to seeing you at the Columbus Botanical Garden Naturalist Symposium for a weekend of nature, learning, and fun.
