Why Native Plants Matter
October 28 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Native plants are beautiful, important for our local and regional ecosystems and do not need the high nutrient and water inputs of commonly cultivated plants. These qualities make native plant species excellent additions to our gardens!
In this one-hour Zoom webinar, Wild Seed Project founder Heather McCargo covers the many reasons we all should care about our region’s native flora and the importance of bringing native plants back into our gardens and developed landscapes. She also discusses current native plant trends and issues in the nursery trade (including cloning and the loss of genetic diversity), and explains how we all can support our native flora by planting seed-grown native plants.
