Spring Symposium – Registration Required

| Garden Tours

Wild Ones Youngstown Area Chapter’s 1st Annual Spring Symposium is on Saturday, May 14th, 2022, which happens to be World Migratory Bird Day.

Time: 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. approximately maybe 5:00 p.m. depending on how many guests show up and how many questions the two speakers answer.

Location: 2101 Hubbard Road Youngstown, Ohio 44505 (corner of Hubbard Road and Holland Avenue).

Please note we are working on getting additional parking across the street at the Tire Shop and the other nearby businesses. This is a “standing / walking the garden” event, if you would like to sit please feel free to bring your own bag chairs, lawn chairs, etc. We realize some of our guests will not be able to stand for the entire event and thus are more than welcome to bring a chair.

Opening Ceremony: Ribbon cutting courtesy of Youngstown / Warren Regional Chamber. Followed by a beautiful cake cutting ceremony thanks to Renee’s Royalties. Plus, amazing cupcakes, and a few other awesome garden themed desserts also thanks to Renee’s Royalties.

Please note we also have 10 adorable t-shirts courtesy of Shelby Bingham to giveaway to the first 10 kids that arrive at the event. We are working on “Welcome Packets” for all attendees with the information of other garden / botanical / environmentally minded organizations (if you would like to donate business cards, pamphlets, bourchures, merchandise, etc. just let us know).

Followed by presentations from guest speakers Joel Hunt, Program Administrator at Highway Beautification and Pollinator Program and naturalist, Julie Bartolone founder of WildYou.org.

Please note Dyngle Hopper Photography is trying to be on site that day to take photos of the event, its guests, and all the magic.

Concluded by a Native Seed Exchange / Native Seed Giveaway (working on acquiring the seeds).
