Suburban Ecology: Native Plants, A Healthy Planet Begins at Home – In Person
June 20, 2023 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PMFree
What is biodiversity and why is it so important? In todays world of decreasing insect and bird populations, we can all do better in our home landscapes. This presentation features real landscape plans showcasing sustainable practices that everyone can incorporate into their own home. Concepts like why native plants are important, capturing rainwater, and rain gardens. One way to increase your biodiversity and help with down stream flooding is to install a rain garden, a concave area planted heavily with native plants, that collects and cleans the rainwater from your downspouts before returning it to the ground.
