Weed and native plant identification
Tending practices and a little about the background of this important ecosystem in our region – and how you can start your own low-maintenance/low-water use meadow patch to help bees.
Take home native wildflower seed!
Bring gloves and your favorite weeding/digging tool. Dress for the weather. Ages 10 and up.
Childcare provided at no cost for kids 5-10. Please register online.
