Please join us for the Fall Tour! This year's tour is headed to Billings September 9-10, 2021.
The two-day event starts on Thursday, September 9th with a Certified Plant Professional (CPP) Exam, Hackers & Pruners 9-Hole Golf Scramble, and Kick-Off Dinner. Site tours around the Billings area will be the following day, on Friday, September 10th. Join us for one, or better yet, both days.
Fall Tour is a great way to (literally) see what fellow professionals are doing in the field. It's a fun two days with lots of opportunity to learn from other horticulture professionals, rejuvenate, connect with fellow MNLA members, and share new ideas.
