    Garden Speakers Series: How to Use the Diversity of Native Plants in you Garden

    Thursday, February 18

    GARDEN SPEAKER SERIES

    HOW-TO USE THE DIVERSITY OF NATIVE PLANTS IN YOUR GARDEN

    Online Event, Streaming on the Museum of the Grand Prairie Facebook and YouTube pages, 7 p.m.

    With the large amount of time everyone is spending at home these days, the theme for this year’s Garden Speaker Series is “How-To at Home” with programs focusing on how to garden in various ways within your own home. The first European settlers to arrive in Illinois encountered a fabulous natural landscape, with a mosaic of prairie, savanna, forest, bogs, shorelines, and even cypress swamps. The rapid settlement and subsequent economic development of Illinois has dramatically affected the biology of Illinois, and only a tiny fraction of the original landscape has survived. As a consequence, many people are interested in using native plants in landscaping. There is a wealth of native plant materials that can be used in landscape situations – trees, shrubs, woodland wildflowers, and prairie plants. A few selected examples of each of these will be discussed during the presentation, with more detailed information presented in a digital handout. Ken Robertson, Illinois Natural History Survey and Jack Zinnen, U of I Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Resources, will present this engaging virtual program. FREE. For more info: (217) 586-2612 or pcain@ccfpd.org.
