Why Going Native Matters; Beauty, Biodiversity and Resilience with Oceanside Conservation Trust of Casco

August 1 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free – $20

Join Oceanside Conservation Trust’s Annual Meeting (OCT) at the Long Island Community Center.

Featuring a special presentation from Heather McCargo, Founder and Executive Director of Wild Seed Project. In this slide presentation, Heather will cover the many reasons we all should care about our regions native flora and bring these native plants back into our developed landscapes. Native plants are beautiful, they are important for our regions’ ecosystem functioning, and they do not need the high inputs of water and nutrients of commonly cultivated plants, making them excellent additions to our gardens. She will then explain what is going on in the nursery trade with native plants including loss of genetic diversity and cloning, and how we can all support our native flora by planting seed grown native plants.

Light refreshments will be served at the event.
