Plant a Native Garden
Saturday, August 20th, Noon - 1PM

Why choose an invasive or exotic plant that could either escape into the wild or require chemical fertilizers that eventually end up in Puget Sound when you could choose from a diverse and eco-friendly list of Native Plants. The class will walk through and discuss plants in the Native Plant Walk at the Arboretum. Bring a description of your garden and we will show you which natives will do best in your setting.
