Bringing Nature Home: Native Shrubs for Your Yard
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Presented by Cleveland Metroparks Naturalist Stefanie Verish

Most residential yards, businesses, and corporate campuses base landscape design on shrubs. The popular ones, such as burning bush, privet, and honeysuckle, were introduced from other continents by the horticultural trade. Many are unappealing to native insects and birds, or so appealing that seeds are spread into our natural areas and outcompete beneficial native shrubs. This talk will focus on how to identify invasive introduced species and how to replace them with beautiful and beneficial native shrubs.

This talk is part of a series of talks hosted by Friends of Lower Lake and Doan Brook Watershed Partnership that are focused on native plants and sustainable gardening leading up to and in celebration of Ohio’s first ever Native Plant Month in April
