A note from Carol Capobiano, director of the NPC:
“The Native Plant Center offers a few ways to beat the winter blues:
1) Think Spring Planting: The Native Plant Center’s Pre-Sale Catalog offers 50 beautiful and beneficial species of trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses, and ferns. Peruse descriptions and photos of the plants and download the order form here.
2) Take a Class: Learn from leading experts how to grow a sustainable garden through Go Native U. The spring semester kicks off Saturday, February 1, with the ever popular Native Plants that Deer Don’t Browse. For a full list of courses and registration information, click here.
3) Consider Wildlife: Increase the ecological value of your landscapes by creating essential habitat for birds, butterflies, bees, and other native animals. Find out from noted author Dr. Doug Tallamy and others at The Native Plant Center’s conference, Wildlife Matters: Creating Landscapes that Sustain Nature, on March 17. For details, click here.
4) Plan a Getaway: Join The Native Plant Center for a 3-day excursion to Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard to learn about the plants and wildlife native to that region. Guided tours explore surf and turf. Find out more.
