This past spring the Illinois Native Plant Symposium was held at John A. Logan College and brought together experts from all over Illinois to talk in depth about the importance of native plants and to also talk about the wonders of all things natural in Illinois. Here, you will hear from two of the experts who were speakers at the event.
