For 43 years, the National Collegiate Landscape Competition (NCLC) has been bringing landscape and horticulture students together with industry manufacturers and suppliers to help launch careers and build long-term relationships. Many students who participate in the event rate it as "one of the highlights of their college careers."
Billed as the largest Career Fair in the industry, this annual three-day event was to take place at Michigan State University in March, but will now be held has a virtual event due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
At James River Nurseries, we understand the impact the NCLC has on the lives of so many horticulture students, and it's gratifying to know they will still be able to participate in this event, albeit in a much different setting.
We'd like to give a shout-out to to those who are making the efforts to ensure these students will have this experience.
The live, virtual event will take place April 7-8 from 1-4pm EST each day.
Next year's event will take place at Va. Tech.
