The public is invited to the monthly meetings of the Lake-to-Prairie chapter of the Wild Ones, a national not-for-profit organization that promotes the use of native plants in landscapes.
Landscaping with Natives
This one hour presentation introduces and explains the many benefits of landscaping using native plants. Not only are native plants beautiful and versatile, they are great for our environment because they support pollinators, native birds, butterflies and other wildlife, reduce erosion and much more.
Landscaping with Natives will be presented by Lake-to-Prairie Wild Ones board member and passionate native gardener, Sandy Washburn. Sandy earned her Master Gardener certificate at the Chicago Botanic Garden and is active in local efforts to remove invasive species and restore appropriate natives to these areas. She also helps coordinate a garden project in Highland Park that provides fresh produce to a local food pantry.
