Knowing Native Plants: Meadow Magic (Virtual Class)

Saturday, July 25 10:00 am
Saturday, July 25 12:00 pm


Join Naturalist Mary Anne Borge and discover, virtually, the Preserve’s 4-acre meadow. This program will introduce you to native plants that thrive in a meadow habitat, including wildflowers, grasses, sedges and rushes. Learn what defines a meadow, the benefits it provides, meadow successional stages, the actions necessary to maintain a meadow, as well as the animals that depend on this type of ecosystem. Find out why it is important to plant native species and avoid non-native ornamentals that may escape from cultivation. Whether you are looking for ideas for your own meadow or want help identifying plants in the meadows where you hike, this program is for you.
