In progressive communities, native plant landscapes are becoming the norm rather than the exception. This in-depth workshop, designed for both beginner and advanced gardeners, offers information and resources on how to landscape with native plants to enhance biodiversity, create beautiful habitat gardens and address issues such as invasive species and management at home, in your own yard. Additional topics include developing a rain garden, top performing native plants, gardening for pollinators, and municipal landscape ordinances.  This workshop is a cooperative effort of the Missouri Department of Conservation, Shaw Nature Reserve, St. Louis Audubon Society, Wild Ones, Grow Native & Missouri Prairie Foundation.

Native landscaping workshop that will be held at Powder Valley on March 31. Dave Tylka, author of “Native Landscaping for Wildlife and People” will be the keynote speaker for the workshop.
