About the event

Come learn about native plants with Shawn Jalbert, a native plant advocate. Why do plants need an advocate? Even though native plants grow all around us, general knowledge about their function and importance in our world is woefully lacking. By planting natives you are supporting an entire food web, stitching back together our tattered ecosystems. Native plants provide food for pollinators and insect larvae; the latter of which is a critical food source for birds both young and old. In my opinion, native plants are the answer to many of our most pressing environmental problems; loss of habitat and biodiversity, slowing climate change through carbon sequestration, erosion control, water quality, the list goes on and on.
