 Gardens showing early stages of planting natives

The gardens are all different and in different stages of planting.  Some are just getting started (see above), while others exhibit a full blast of color!  Some are meant for decoration while others provide food.  The gardeners will be present at each location to describe their goals and talk about their process.  

When you stop by the office to pick up your map, enter a drawing to win Doug Tallamy’s book Nature’s Best Hope!
