Otterbein Nature Series

Monday, June 25, 1-2 pm

Do you love butterflies and birds and want to provide food for their young?  Do you yearn for simple, beautiful plants that have a place in your local ecosystem?  Are you anxious to grow plants that are naturally adapted to the weather conditions of your area?  Do you wonder what your bit of land looked like in older times?  Native plants are the plants for you.  Natives offer you easy to maintain gardens.  On top of all the food native plants offer wildlife, they are lovely plants for any style garden.  Join us at next month’s offering of the Otterbein Nature Series to learn about the benefits of “going native” in your garden with Sue Saari, Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist and owner of “GoNativesNow,” a local nursery specializing in native plants.

Free and Open to the Public
