The Plant Protection Program encompasses a variety of activities and resources that engage public gardens in forest health protection and plant conservation.

The program provides members with customizable interpretive materials designed to be displayed in public gardens, scouting resources and pest detection training opportunities through our Sentinel Plant Network, and outreach materials targeted to young audiences through our Plant Heroes™ Youth Program.

This session will provide an overview of the program initiatives, highlight ways for organizations to make use of the wide range of resources, as well as opportunities for professional development.
