"How Using Native Plants Can Restore Nature in our Communities"
Join Meridian's Land Stewardship Coordinator to explore the magical world of native plants, the effect they have on our ecosystems, and how we can bring them into our backyards. We will discuss some of the biggest threats to native species, and how our community can take part in conserving local natural areas by growing native!
