Native Plant Gardening for a Water-Challenged Future

The California Native Plant Society Horticulture Program envisions a California where native plants are widely available and routinely incorporated into public and private landscapes to conserve resources, extend habitat, and create a sense of place. This presentation will introduce you to the messages and approaches we are using to help people to learn native plant gardening.

Lower your water bill, reduce yard maintenance, and attract songbirds & butterflies to your home with native plants.

Topics include:

* Why now
* Benefits and issues
* Designing your native plant garden
* The best plants for your native garden
* And much, much more . . .
