The Peconic Land Trust will present “The Importance of Growing Native Plants: A Guide for Your Landscape” on Saturday, October 24, for free via Zoom.
Panelists will explain why growing plants that are native to Long Island is critical to the local ecosystem, such as how native plants provide food and habitat for pollinators, birds and other wildlife. The program will include suggested trees, shrubs, perennials and grasses to grow that will look good in East End gardens.
The panel will include Rick Bogusch, the director of Bridge Gardens; Brian Smith, the vice president of the of Long Island Native Plant Initiative; and John Witzenbocker, the owner/beekeeper of Sag Harbor Honey.
Jessica Damiano, a contributing garden writer for Newsday, will moderate.
