Native Plant Symposium
Growing and protecting native plants are important for many reasons: they celebrate this state and region, they are well suited to this region’s growing conditions, and they are the foundation of the complex ecosystem that supports insects, birds, reptiles, amphibians and mammals. Native plants can be tough, beautiful garden plants for home landscapes as well as delicate harbingers of the changing season. Explore the lightly forested landscapes called woodlands where sunlight is relatively plentiful, soil moisture is low and plant diversity is high. Learn about the plants that thrive in woodlands (and woodland gardens) and the efforts to protect and restore these disappearing habitats.
