    February 14 at 11 a.m. - 'Strategies for Adding Natives to Any Size Landscape' with Melinda Myers
    Whether gardening on a small city lot or larger space, Melinda Myers will help you select the right native plants for your landscape and gardening goals. Native plants are deeply rooted, helping to capture, clean, and channel rainfall to groundwater. This helps reduce the overflow of storm sewers, basement backups and pollutants entering our waterways. Natives also support our pollinators, other beneficial insects and birds that add enjoyment and essential functions in our gardens and communities.
