Native Plants for Wetlands and Shorelines
Do you have a ditch, shoreline, or wetland on your property you want to spruce up beyond cattails and swamp grass? Do you have an area of yard where grass just won't grow because it is wet most of the time? There are lots of varieties of natives and non-native perennials that can be used to add color, texture, and eye-appeal that don't mind having wet toes. Let's figure out how to add an aesthetic splash into that soggy site. Participants will receive a free native plant book and there will be several gift certificates from local nurseries given away as door prizes.
