Native plants are disappearing in this country at a rapid rate, and along with them go the pollinators that depend on them—the birds, bees, butterflies and thousands of other species.

The Oklahoma Chapter ASLA invites you to a FREE zoom presentation, which will discuss why and how to use native plants in the ornamental landscape as a way to support those species while creating beautiful, low-maintenance landscapes.

Please forward this invitation to others who might be interested.

OSU is unveiling two new turfgrass varieties, which will be available for commercial use in the next two to four years.

The average golf fan at Southern Hills Country Club may not know the turfgrass surrounding them at the PGA Championship this week was created right here at Oklahoma State University. That same turfgrass has become a staple at a number of major sports venues throughout the years, so it's always exciting to unveil new varieties.

Scientists at OSU are thrilled to announce the release of, not one, but two new varieties that will be available for commercial use in the next two to four years.

Read about the varieties, some of their characteristics and much more at the link below.

Last week Connor Moses, Nick Sahs, Nahlia Howard and Adrian Alexander headed to the 2022 LABash Conference in Baton Rouge, LA. The student organized conference was hosted by the LSU Landscape Architecure Student Chapter from March 31 - April 2.

Here’s what Adrian had to say about the experience. “LABash was once again a great success. Our whole group won different items from firms and companies while also making potential job connections. All of the lectures and events we attended were inspiring and mind opening. While I learned that I might try for a masters degree, the rest of my group made like minded friends and networked to potential job connections. The professional experiences were great and the fun bonding events were greatly impactful. I can't wait till next year's labash in Kansas!”
