Friends to discuss native plants
Friends of the Parks will present “Native Gardens and Habitat — Planting for Wildlife” at 10 a.m. July 12 at the Donley property along Five Points Road.
The 39-acre site includes a bog garden, two ponds and a meadow with native flowers and grasses.
The diverse wildlife that flourishes in this setting includes frogs, birds, butterflies and dragonflies.
The program will explain how to incorporate native plant and wildlife features into your own landscape. Native plants and seeds will be offered to participants along with information on how to grow and care for them.
