Native Plants for Winter Interest and Wildlife

 Registration is closed for this event
Design your garden with winter aesthetics and wildlife in mind!

Our home gardens are often designed for the warm growing season, overlooking the potential of a stunning winter garden with snow-capped seed heads and hints of green. In this workshop, participants will learn about 20 native plants that are best as a winter highlight in the home garden and tips on supporting nesting wild bees, overwintering butterflies, and songbirds throughout the cold winter months.

Please note that this event will be held in the regular zoom meeting format, not presentation mode. Therefore, all participants will be on screen and have the ability to interact with the speaker and other attendees during the meeting.
