Dear Friends and Colleagues,
For 32 years the University of Florida IFAS and the Hillsborough County Extension Service have organized and presented a daylong workshop on landscape maintenance and the care of trees and shrubs. This year, the 2013 Tree and Landscape Short Course will take place at the state of the art Trinkle Conference Center on the campus of Hillsborough Community College in Plant City FL (please see attached brochure).
The program is packed with classes that present the latest science and technology associated with arboriculture and professional landscape management. The theme of the Short Course is ‘Sustainable Urban Landscapes’ and the ongoing need for water quantity conservation and water quality protection.
The classes provide practical and useable information and training that support technical and professional certification through the award of Continuing Education Credits from the International Society of Arboriculture (certified arborists), Florida Nursery Growers and Landscape Association (landscaping professionals) and Florida DOACS (pesticide operators). We anticipate that each attendee can receive up to 5 CEUs from the ISA in arboriculture, 6-pesticide operator CEU’s from FL DOACS, plus 4 FNGLA CEUs.
We continue to provide a mix of general sessions and breakout sessions to allow participants the flexibility to focus on topics specific to their work responsibilities and to increase their ability to obtain the most appropriate CEUs.
Registration, which includes lunch and a morning break, is $35/person. Money is tight across the board and like you we are making every effort to provide high quality educational opportunities that support governments, industry and our Extension employees at the lowest cost possible.
As noted in the attached brochure registration can best be handled through our on-line service at http://2013tlsc.eventbrite.com that will take most major credit cards. If you need to use a check, please follow the directions found on the web site … we look forward to seeing you next month … Rob and Susan
P.S. Please forgive us for duplicate email announcements as we work on cleaning up our contact lists.
