Time: 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Powell Gardens is hosting, Native Prairie Series: Why Prairies Matter (New Relevancies of a Vanishing Landscape).
Nearly 2,000 plant species are native to Missouri. They are the foundation of many facets of our economies–from timber production to outdoor recreation–and are the backbone of our agricultural history. Today, there are new uses of native plants in communities that improve quality of life for all, including creation of pollinator habitat, reduction of Nature Deficit Disorder, stormwater management, and carbon storage.
In her presentation, Executive Director of the Missouri Prairie Foundation and its Grow Native! program, Carol Davit, will share past, present, and potentially future uses of native plants in Missouri communities.
A boxed lunch and non-alcoholic drink is included with this class.
It will be held Saturday, September 23 from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Powell Gardens, Conifer Room, 1609 NW US Hwy 50, Kingsville, MO.
