The annual Desert Green conference co-sponsored by Cooperative Extension has initiated many changes for 2014. The dates are November 6-7 and the new location is the Henderson Convention Center located at 200 S. Water St., Henderson, Nev.
“Tapping into the Future: smart alternative for tomorrow’s landscape” focuses on water conservation and new ways to offer sustainable turf and landscapes for the arid Southwest. The conference features two days concurrent seminar tracks, table top displays and a green industry mixer. Keynote speaker, Jim Downer, is a perennial favorite at the conference and will offer his view of industry changes plus educational sessions.
