Gardening for Diversity – Session 3 – Selecting Native Species

Gardening for Diversity - Session 3 - Selecting Native Species

Apr 13, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Perfect for beginning gardeners and anyone who is interested in supporting native plantings in their outdoor spaces, Gardening for Diversity will give you the confidence and background knowledge you need to grow a beautiful native garden that supports local wildlife and provides other great benefits for you and your community!

Not all plants are appropriate for every site. Learning what species will flourish at your site helps with longevity and health of your garden. This session covers what you need to consider to choose plant species that will thrive and reweave the food web. Join Michelle Biodrowski from Pottawattamie Conservation and continue on your pollinator adventure!  

Participants can pick and choose which sessions they would like to attend, but we recommend attending as many as possible to ensure you build a strong foundational knowledge.

Remaining session topics include:

  • Part 4: Garden Prep & Groundwork – May TBD (Will be held at Hitchcock Nature Center – please check back for details)

Cost is $15.00 per person per session and covers program materials. Ages 14+ please. Online pre-registration is required as space is limited. For questions not answered online please call 712-545-3283.
