Turn your typical suburban yard into a native haven attracting birds, butterflies and other beneficial wildlife.  Even a soggy area of lawn can become an ecologically sound rain garden that is better adapted to handle rain water runoff.  Problem shady areas can become beautiful woodland settings.  Native plants not only add beauty; they also allow us to make a positive impact on soil, water, and air quality.  Not sure where to start?  Master Gardeners will be available to answer your questions regarding plants and gardening!
