Webinar: Best Native Plants For Your Garden, March 8

Master Gardener Linda Dietrick will discuss high-priority native plants that are essential for the survival of local pollinators and that can be attractive additions to garden designs. She will also identify plants that are not native to our region, but can still provide many ecological benefits.
