Prairie Planting Workshops

Instructor John Morgan will help you increase biodiversity in your back yard. Find out how prairie species can be included in your landscape designs, and why using native plant material is important for conservation. These four beginner workshops guide participants through site preparation, selecting plant species, seed germination, planting and maintenance for flower beds or larger prairie restorations.
