Talk “Native Plants for Wildlife”
If you want to plant natives with the intention of improving wildlife habitat, this presentation will show quality plants that can be purchased both in bulk by seed and sometimes in pots at native plant sales and nurseries. Photos of the plants and the wildlife they benefit, including pollinators, will be shown. A companion handout listing the common and scientific names of all plants shown will be given out.
Walk “Plants Beneficial for Prairie Wildlife”
Come and enjoy a bit of botanizing on the prairie as we discuss plants that we come across on our path. Learn their names, their values, and more about these distinguished native grasses, forbs, and shrubs. We will likely see some evil invaders as well.
