Event description
*Please note, this event takes place at Phipps Garden Center on Shady Avenue near Mellon Park - not at the Botanical Gardens in Schenley Park.

Come learn with us as we discuss how natural grass sports fields can sustain more usage, all the while being safe for athletes to play on! From maintenance strategies, to soil health, our experienced panel of lecturers can help answer your questions on how to maintain the longevity and health of your sports fields, while also increasing hours of usage. Whether you manage 1 grass field or 10 grass fields, we welcome all borough managers, parks directors, athletic directors, and school grounds directors for this informative training. This event is open to the public.
