    NCYGS is the only national event of its kind where you can network with like-minded teachers, garden designers, community leaders, program coordinators, and others involved with connecting kids to the natural world.
    Enjoy the "Live Music Capital of the World" and its diverse gardening and local foods scene at NCYGS 2015 in Austin, Texas July 9-11.
    Attendees will experience the recently opened Luci and Ian Family Garden, the only native plant garden developed for families in central Texas, at local host the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.  NCYGS 2015 will be headquartered at the Radisson Austin Downtown just steps from Lady Bird Lake, a 10-mile hike-and-bike trail, a variety of local dining, and the world's largest urban bat colony.
