Bringing Nature Home 2020: It’s About Time

This year, Friends of Lower Lake and Doan Brook Watershed Partnership will once again host a series of talks on native plants and sustainable gardening leading up to Ohio’s first ever Native Plant Month in April.

The Bringing Nature Home speaker series will journey from the tree canopy to the shrub layer to the ground layer for a holistic look at what makes up a healthy habitat in our public and private green spaces. Our tagline, “It’s About Time,” reflects the urgency of restoring our urban habitat to a healthy one as well as how the sequence of plant life supports insects and birds throughout the growing season

Right Plant, Right Place

We all have that spot where nothing seems happy. Our yards have wet, part wet, dry, part dry, shady, part shady, sunny, part sunny, clayey, acidic, or all-of-the-above spots. How do we know what native plants to plant where? Learn what native plants offered by the 38th annual NCSL plant sale find a suitable habitat in your yard. Presented by Nick Mikash, Natural Resource Specialist at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes

@ 2:15 pm Pollinator Path challenge-Neighbors on Bradford Road in Cleveland Heights have started a tree lawn pollinator path.
