Master Gardeners: Gardening With Natives, Edible Landscaping, Herbs
March 5 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Presenter: Anne Geyer A staggering one-third of U.S. birds are in danger due to native habitat loss. Native bird populations and their habitat companions–insects, butterflies, and wildlife– will continue to decline unless we restore the native plants they need for survival in our suburban ecosystems. It’s not too late, and fortunately, restoring native plants in a human landscape is easy to do. Ann Geyer, an enthusiastic advocate for re-introducing native plants to residential gardens, will describe how native plants effect our entire ecosystems and the many options we have to adding natives to our own gardens. The presentation will include examples of the many natives that grow well on the Oregon coast.
