Public Welcome Free Event Program/Speaker Presentation

Presented by Steve Young, botanist. For native plant gardeners, it is most beneficial to plant the right plant in the right place. There are four ecoregions in the Capital District, each with its own set of conditions that support a distinct set of ecological communities that support a distinct mixture of native plants that require specific conditions to grow. We will look at what constitutes an ecoregion and an ecological community and the plants they contain so you can select the best plants for your situation.
