MNPS Meeting: "Habitat Value of Natives: More Than Fashionable Flowers"

  • 07/29/2008
  • 7:30 PM
  • Wheaton Regional Library

Continuing the theme of last year's Irvine Native Plant Seminar and this year's Lahr Symposium, this month's meeting will compare cultivars of native plants with native species and how these plants relate to the natural communities around us. Join Lou Aronica, a founding member of MNPS and native plant grower, for a presentation on the choices planners, homeowners, and gardeners have in drawing from the region's natural floristic diversity and plant associations, with an aim towards conservation and restoration.

Location: Wheaton Regional Library – Large Meeting Room
11701 Georgia Ave, Wheaton, MD 20902

Directions: Exit the Washington Beltway at Georgia Ave/MD 97 (exit 31) and head north toward Wheaton. Go about 2.4 miles; library is on right. The last intersection is Dawson Ave; if you reach Arcola Ave, you've gone too far.

There will be refreshments and door prizes. Pot luck refreshments are always welcome.

The meeting is open to non-members.

Meetings take place on the last Tuesday of each month.
