North Shore Audubon presents: NATIVE PLANTS FOR A BIRD-FRIENDLY HABITAT
Tuesday March 28, 2017
This program is open to all. Refreshments will be served. Speaker Vincent Simeone, author of Native Plants for a Bird-friendly Habitat, and Director of Planting Fields Arboretum NYS Historic Park. There has long been a debate between the virtues of native plants vs. exotic species. Many worthwhile native trees, shrubs, perennials, and groundcovers have gone ignored to put more emphasis on plants with Asian or European nativity. Many native plants can provide ornamental benefits and function in the landscape. Because these plants are native, they will thrive in our climate where sited correctly and support native wildlife. This presentation will dispel the notion that native plants are not as interesting in the landscape as exotics. www.northshoreaudubon.org
