Where Do Native Plants Come From? with Mike Leahy – Webinar
December 15, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm CST
All of the native plants that we use in landscaping endeavors in the lower Midwest have a rich natural history. They come from distinct natural communities, which are inter-related assemblages of flora, fauna, soils, regional climate, geologic history, and natural processes such as flooding or fire. Mike will present information on a wide variety of natural community types from prairies to forests and their ecological stories, highlighting a number of natives commonly used in native landscaping and how they grow in the wild. A knowledge of the original habitats of our native plants can deepen the inspiration and success of all those who work towards regenerative landscapes, large and small.
The webinar, to be held via Zoom, will be 45 minutes including a question and answer session. The webinar will be recorded, and sent to all registrants as well as posted to our YouTube channel.
This is a free event – registration is required.
