July 27 & 28, 2022
Join us for the first Global Steppe Symposium, a forum for the international steppe community.
The semi-arid grasslands and shrublands that constitute the steppes contain some of the most vibrant and resilient life on earth. Studying the steppes through traditional cultures and modern sciences provides deep and complementary knowledge that can strengthen our understanding and appreciation of all life. The Global Steppe Symposium provides a forum for the international steppe community as we explore how to live and thrive in the high plains of the world.
This symposium will bring together scientists, plant lovers, land stewards, agriculturists and artists who live and work in steppes, investigating the complicated and essential relationship between humans, gardens and the steppes.
Attend both days or just one day.
Presented by Denver Botanic Gardens’ Center for Global Initiatives

Regional gardeners, farmers, ecologists and artists will share their experiences living and working in the steppes of North America, translating their explorations of the landscapes and cultures of the high plains for use in gardens of the semi-arid West.
