Upcoming Native Plant and Wildlife Gardening Talk

Do you live in the Flathead? Or, if you don't, and you'd like to take a little trip, join me at the monthly meeting of the Flathead Chapter of the Montana Native Plant Society, on February 16th. This meeting will be held at 7 pm. at Discovery Square, 540 Nucleus Ave. in Columbia Falls (the old First Citizen’s Bank). My talk "Conservation Gardening: Landscaping with Montana Native Plants for Montana Native Wildlife in your own Backyard" will show how native plant gardening can be fun, educational, sustainable and meaningful.

Planning gardens, identifying problem areas in my landscape and thinking of all the potential and the possibilities is one of my favorite parts of gardening. This talk will focus on using Mon­tana native plants to create habi­tat for native wildlife and to create a sustainable garden for people to enjoy. If you are thinking about adding more native plants or attracting wildlife, I think you'll enjoy this program.

If you've never been to a Montana Native Plant Society event, look up your local chapter and consider attending a meeting, or joining the society. There are a lot of great events and even more wonderful people in the society- it is a great place to learn about native plants and their habitats.
