Presented by Amy Jensen Thomas, WOMM Program Chair, MSW, MNRD 

This presentation is geared to any size yard or property, urban or rural. 

We’ll begin with a brief overview of the ecological and environmental benefits and importance of using native plants in landscapes and gardens. 

We’ll explore the differences between “cultivars,” “nativars” and “true native” plants, and each of their possible potential impacts on pollinators and wildlife.  

Next we’ll enjoy a list of side-by-side photo comparisons of “Plant This, Not That,” identifying some basic alternative native species which make transitioning portions of your garden to natives easy. The native species in this section have been selected for their similar visual characteristics, bloom time and foliage shapes of often seen cultivars, but possess pollinator / wildlife enhancing qualities cultivars lack.  

We will also discuss local nursery sources for safely grown native plants, and have some time for Q&A.
