About this event

Many home gardeners would like to add native plants to their garden, but are unsure how to start. This program takes a look at native plants that are low maintenance and grow in a wide range of conditions. Native grasses, wildflowers, trees and shrubs will be covered. Speaker Nancy Bell is a University of Illinois Extension Master Gardener.

This is an in-person presentation ONLY, unless COVID-19 dictates otherwise.* Registered attendees will receive updates, should we need to switch to a virtual presentation. Elmhurst Public Library (EPL) currently requires masks indoors. Should the EPL rules change, Elmhurst Cool Cities Coalition strongly encourages mask-wearing for the health and safety of attendees, our presenter, and EPL staff.

This program is part of Elmhurst Cool Cities Coalition's Start In Your Yard initiative. Our call-to-action is based on Doug Tallamy's book, Nature's Best Hope: A New Approach to Conservation That Starts In Your Yard, which urges homeowners to restore biodiversity and critical ecosystems.
