Native Plants with the ASWP

June 22nd, 2019 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Our second workshop of the day during our 3 day Pollinator Celebration:
Native Plants with the Audubon Society of Western PA! 
Join Roxanne Swan, Environmental Botanist of the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania for a workshop focusing on native plants and how to incorporate them into your landscape. In addition to learning about what a native plant is, where to plant them and why, you will learn which pollinator friends these plants support. Roxanne will have plants on hand for sale, as well as an opportunity for you to get your hands dirty and make some native plant seed balls to take home with you.
In addition, you will also learn some tips on how to know if you have butterflies in your garden and how to monitor the monarch life cycle. You can then join the fight to help save the monarch: thru the Monarch Watch project. Maybe your garden can become a much needed ”waystation?”
This event is free and open to everyone. Please RSVP to Danielle at danielle@mygardendreams.com. Donations are welcome.
