Fundamentals of Landscaping with Native Plants Class

Posted by Ron Wolford -

Fundamentals of landscaping with native plants is on the agenda for this month's meeting of the Wild Flower Preservation Society at the Lincoln Park Cultural Center, 2045 N. Lincoln Park West, 1:15 p.m., Thursday, February 1.

Denise Sandoval, Good Natured Landscapes, Naperville will talk about selecting the right plants for a site, discuss different native plant gardens and offer design tips and other suggestions for using native plants. Diversified landscapes to attract birds, butterflies and beneficial insects and how to make them happen will also be covered. Two of GNL's Lincoln Park clients plan to attend to talk about their gardens. The group meets for a Dutch-treat lunch at 11:30 a.m. at the Original Pancake House, 2020 North Lincoln Park West.

The meetings of the group which are free earn one hour of continuing education credit in the Master Gardener program. Annual dues are $10 and the 94-year-old group is dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of wild flowers.
