Online: Going Native with Dan Jaffe Wilder

March 15, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am EDT

 

The past decade has seen massive changes in the landscape industry. The days of landscapes dedicated to beauty alone are passing. Customers are demanding ecologically sensitive landscapes; they want reduced lawn, reduced maintenance, and greater wildlife value. In other words, they want native plants. But not all natives make good landscape choices; some are overly fussy about their habitat needs, while others will take over small spaces, and plenty more simply don’t resonate with all clients. Join Dan Jaffe Wilder, author, and the Director of Applied Ecology at Norcross Wildlife Foundation for a discussion about how to work native plants into any landscape. From tried-and-true species to solution plants for hard-to-fill spots we will discuss how to landscape with native plants successfully.

Cost: $25
