Dr. Leopold will highlight native herbaceous and woody species that are no maintenance/long-lived, adapted to extreme conditions, to attract wildlife, are deer proof, or/and produce food for people.
The information presented will be applicable to home gardens as well as urban projects and larger scale restoration of degraded industrial landscapes. An overview of how native species are found in natural plant communities, and how knowing about the ecology of natural communities can be used to select plant species, will also be discussed.
Presented by Dr. Donald Leopold
