Native Plants: Spreading the Word Beyond the Choir – Feb. 14 – WLS 2021

Sunday, February 14 2:00 pm
Sunday, February 14 3:00 pm



Recent studies show bird populations have decreased by almost 30% in the past 50 years, while insect populations have declined 40% worldwide in the past 40 years. In some areas, the declines are even more dramatic. Native plants are a key part of the solution to reversing this trend. Are you already using native plants on your own property, but would like to learn how to convince your neighbors, homeowners association, local municipality and other governmental bodies to adopt the use of native plants? Join naturalist, author and photographer Mary Anne Borge to find out how she and her team at Lambertville Goes Wild transformed their town into a wildlife haven. She will cover strategies to help you achieve this transformation in your own neighborhood or town.

Mary Anne Borge is a naturalist, photographer, author and educator. A naturalist at Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve since 2006, she is a Pennsylvania Master Naturalist and editor of Butterfly Gardener magazine. She is the team leader for Lambertville Goes Wild, a volunteer group whose efforts  successfully led to the National Wildlife Federation’s certification of Lambertville, N.J., as a community wildlife habitat. At her blog,, Mary Anne writes about and, with her photography, illustrates the importance of native plants to all life on Earth.
