Midewest Grows Green Lawn & Land Forum Webinar: Grass Selection

March 8, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

WHEN: March 8th, 2018, 2 PM – 3 PM CST

WHERE: Webinar series at GoToWebinar

WHO: Panelists include Geoff Rinehart, University of Maryland, and Dr. Thomas Voigt, University of Illinois.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Managers of turf and other lands including those of Park and School Districts, Municipalities, Policymakers, Non-profits, and Corporate Campuses.

SUMMARY: Planting the right plant in the right place plays a large role in the success of a

natural lawn care (NLC) or integrated pest management (IPM) program. For this webinar, Geoff Rinehart, former coordinator of the Grass Roots Initiative at the

U.S. National Arboretum, and Thomas Voigt, researcher of low-input turfgrass varieties, cover the cool-season grasses that will jump-start your NLC/IPM program this spring.

The Midwest Grows Green Lawn & Land Forum is a collaboration between MPAC and the Illinois Sports Turf Managers Association and funded by the North Central IPM Center to document, summarize, and improve the state of Integrated Pest Management and Natural Lawn Care policies and practices locally, regionally, and nationally. All summaries, findings, and resources developed from this forum will remain open source to turf managers, policymakers, and individuals interested in applying IPM policies and programs to their work.
