“NATIVE PLANTS: LAKE-FRIENDLY BY NATURE”
May 5 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
EVENT PART OF THE LAKE FRIENDLY LIVING AWARENESS WEEK, MAY 2-8, 2021:
This presentation will focus on a select group of native trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses and more–with an emphasis on their environmental and aesthetic values, and where they like to grow naturally. The goal is to help you understand how to choose the right plants for a given project or property, based on their habitat preferences. Sometimes it can be hard to read the habitat type on a disturbed or residential property – where native plants tend to be used (or are needed. Dan will share his experience and his approaches to native plantings that will give your planting projects the best chance of success.
