Tours will be Tuesday afternoon (September 10) and will include a visit to the White Mountain Apache Tribal Forestry. Nursery and a visit to the Apache Cultural Center and Museum. A traditional-style dinner from the host tribe will follow later in the evening. 

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 initated 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. This year’s modules will cover Water Quality and Irrigation and possibly another topic TBD; the modules will be taught Wednesday morning.

A Call for Presentations

The INC hosts are seeking a few more 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 10 and 11). Presenters will have the opportunity to publish their presentations as papers in the National Nursery Proceedings, a USDA Forest Service publication.
