Event description

Description

This class is part of the series Building Resilience with Native Plants, cosponsored by Theodore Payne Foundation and LA Metro. Classes will be held at LA Metro Headquarters (not at TPF).

Nearly 30% of all Metro water use is related to landscaping. In response, Metro stations and landscaping designs are utilizing drought-tolerant California native plants to reduce the need for irrigation while maintaining regional biodiversity. This series:
1)
Teaches how we select these plants
2) Increases awareness about challenges and opportunities related to the use of native plants

About the class Gardening for Wildlife
Landscape choices can play a vital role in the health of local ecosystems when they are enriched with native plants that provide essential
habitat and food for Southern California birds, bees, and butterflies, among other welcome wildlife. Learn about selecting native plants for their benefits to the greater ecosystem and biodiversity. Explore some examples of Metro efforts in planting natives and generate ideas for next steps.
