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 Native Plant Alternatives
California native plants offer beauty, drought tolerance, heat resistance, low maintenance, and habitat for pollinators and other welcome wildlife. They also impart a sense of place to our public and private landscapes. This class discusses native plant alternatives to many of LA's widely used exotic plants, including trees, shrubs, groundcovers and perennials. Go local. Plant native.
