The Wonderful World of Grasses – Dyck Arboretum Native Plant School

February 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CST


Join Scott Vogt as he introduces you to the grass plant family, its ecosystem role within the prairie, how it differs structurally from forbs and how to design with ornamental grasses. We will also look at traditional turf lawns and offer alternatives.

The Dyck Arboretum of the Plains offers numerous workshops that encourage the use of native plants in landscaping. Native plants are drought-tolerant, ornamental, and provide food and shelter to wildlife. A landscape rich with native plants can be enjoyed for its beauty and the wealth of birds and pollinators it attracts. All classes are $5 per person and will be hosted via Zoom.

You will be sent an email providing the necessary information for joining the online meeting. If you are unable to attend the live session, please remember we will send the recording following the live meeting.

All classes will begin at 7 pm and run approximately 45-50 minutes and then conclude with a question & answer session.
