During this program, we will explore the process and numerous benefits of designing home landscapes with native plants.  Key planning steps for ensuring a successful design will be discussed–from a careful site analysis to purchasing considerations.  Along the way, favorite species for our region will be shared. 

Please come to the presentation with one piece of your garden in mind that you would like to work on in the future. If you have a photo of this that you would like to share, please email your image file to with “GardenPhoto for 4/15” in the subject line, or upload at
