Benefits  of  Native  Landscaping  for  Private Landowners,  Subdivision  Developers  and

Daniels   Bee

Corrine Daniels, Vice President and Director of Applied Ecological Services Restoration Nurseries will talk about the benefits of native landscaping – not only for us – private landowners, but also subdivision developers and businesses. Corrine will share how her work at AES has helped to change people’s attitudes about native landscaping – and the excitement she feels. Her excitement about the benefits of planting natives will spark our enthusiasm about spreading the word about native landscaping to our friends and neighbors, too!

“Passion” would be a good word to describe Corrine. She grew up on a farm, where her father taught her a love of nature, which she has nurtured her entire life. She dreamed as a young person of saving threatened and endangered species. “And look at me now – I get to do this on a daily basis!”

Corrine provides professional management for one of the most diverse, multi-state, native seed and plant nursery operation in the Midwest. During nearly 20 years of experience at AES, she has gained a wealth of practical experience in the growing and use of native plants. She enjoys working closely with partners in both the private and public sectors, including non-profit agencies. She is committed to “doing the right thing” for nature, the client, and the project.

We meet at Rock Valley College, 3301 N Mulford Rd, Rockford, Illinois 61114, in the Woodward Technology Center (WTC), rooms 141-142. Look for signs as you enter WTC. The meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. Come at 6:30 p.m. to socialize before the 7:00 meeting, browse the merchandise tables, and check out the library and Wild Ones information booths. This program is free and open to the public.
