Native Plants for the Home Landscape – March 13, 2018 Program

NATIVE PLANTS FOR THE HOME LANDSCAPE presented by Garrett Ormiston
Utilizing native plants in your home gardening projects can be very rewarding. Native plants attract native pollinators, birds, and other species, and are an excellent way to incorporate a natural aesthetic in to your surroundings. They are also quite beautiful! We will discuss many showy examples of native plants that you can consider, and the threat that some of our non-native traditional landscaping plants pose to our parks and natural areas.

Garrett Ormiston is the GIS and Stewardship Specialist in the Natural Areas Division of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.
