Badger Talks Virtual Presentation

April 20th at 7pm via Zoom

“Gardening with Native Plants”

Presented by Susan Carpenter (native plant gardener at the UW-Madison Arboretum).

Native plants are the basis of sustainable, diverse, and beautiful gardens supporting pollinators, beneficial insects, and wildlife. These gardens thrive without fertilizers, pesticides, mowing, or supplemental watering. We will share garden examples, plant sources, and practical tips for garden care.

Link to join will be posted day of program.
