Speaker: Liz McDowell, Coordinator, Western Mountains Chapter of MNPS
Switching to native plants and using conservation landscaping techniques is crucial to the long term health of the environment. As habitat is lost and exotic species invade the most wild and rural areas of our region, gardeners can play a key role in maintaining regional biodiversity. Many native alternatives to the exotic invasive plants commonly used for landscaping in our region will be highlighted. Discover the connection between native plants, wildlife and people. Enhance and preserve regional biodiversity by simply 'going native'.
This program will begin immediately following a brief MNPS chapter business meeting.
