Let’s go native!
Gardening with native plants in our suburban landscape has many environmental benefits. Join landscape designer Amanda Bayley, co-founder of PLAN it WILD, for a presentation on how to beautify your own yard with native plants.
She will present on ecoregions, review the native plant communities that are part of Westchester’s ecoregion, and go over local plants to garden with that are best suited for wet, dry, sunny, and shady areas.
