GardenNews.biz - Feb 24,2017 - Knowing Native Plants Series
We feature a seasonal series of classes called Knowing Native Plants, in which learners of all backgrounds discover both the aesthetic and scientific aspects of our native flora through presentations and field hikes around our grounds.
Knowing Native Plants classes are held on Saturdays in the Preserve Auditorium. The fee for members is $15 and for non-members is $20. Pre-registration is strongly suggested as space is limited. Professional CEUs are available for all sessions.

Join us to discover the Preserve’s most unwanted! In this session, you will learn about the problems caused by invasive plants, which species are of concern at the Preserve and beyond, and the methods we are using to control these exotic intruders. Naturalist Mary Anne Borge will introduce you to invasive plants through an indoor presentation and Grounds Manager Rick Fonda will join Mary Anne to lead you on an outdoor walk. Walk is weather dependent.
