Updates For Landscape Pros Set Oct. 9, 17

Landscape professionals must know a mind-boggling array of things to keep the world around us pretty. To help them stay abreast, the University of Georgia and other institutions will offer regional updates Oct. 9 in Dunwoody, Ga., and Oct. 17 in Augusta, Ga.

While the programs aren't exactly alike, each begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m. Each has a session on the Georgia Certified Landscape Professional program.

Each has updates on such topics as weed, insect and disease control and winter annuals for high-impact color. And each will close with an outdoor, hands-on activity.

Where to Go

The Dunwoody program will be in building C, room 1100, at Georgia Perimeter College. A map to the Dunwoody campus is on the college's Web site.

The Augusta program is in the Medical College of Georgia Alumni Center on 15th Street. The college's Web site has a campus map.

The $20 fee covers lunch and breaks. Sign up by Oct. 2 for Dunwoody and Oct. 10 for Augusta. For more information, call (706) 542-2861.
