Favorite Native Plants: Trees, Shrubs, Flowers and Grasses

Saturday March 9, 2019

Meredith C. Tucker, Naturalist and Chair of CFC’s Habitat Corridors program

Our favorite presenter will share some favorite native plants that are popular with her Habitat Corridors homeowners. These plants grow successfully in various conditions in our area. Come get some ideas for your yard and be ready to order from the plant sale this spring.

Meredith is a naturalist who shares her enthusiasm for using native plants to create healthy habitat for all the valuable critters we want in our yards – the birds, butterflies and other insects. Native plants nourish these native bugs and birds and provide beautiful and useful habitat on homeowners’ properties. She is a former board member and president of Citizens for Conservation and founder and director of Habitat Corridors which provides site visits to homeowners, providing advice to improve habitat in their yards.
