Webinar: “Sponge Landscape”

April 22 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

This webinar introduces sponge landscapes as an accessible method for managing water in urban and suburban areas. Using layers and combinations of native trees and groundcovers, we can put the sponge back into our developed spaces — intercepting, absorbing, and retaining rainwater before it can flood or pollute the landscape.

Cosponsored with Native Plant Trust

“Understanding the Fascinating Life Cycle of Native Plants: Flowering, Pollinators, and Seed Dispersal”

April 28 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

SMCC and PPL Logos

Join Wild Seed Project’s founder, Heather McCargo, and co-hosts Southern Maine Conservation Collaborative and Portland Public Library for a discussion about the fascinating reproductive life cycle of various native plants that are native to New England and how we can change our landscaping practices to support wild plant reproduction and the pollinators and other wildlife that depend on them.

Heather will talk about how easy it is to sow seeds for native plant species, so anyone can join a grassroots movement to help increase native plant populations and protect the genetic diversity of our native flora.
