The WPPC (Wildflower Propagation & Preservation Committee) is hosting a series of free garden walks to promote the use of native plants, shrubs, and trees. The sixth (of seven) walks takes place on Saturday, August 7, 2021 at the Pat and Stan Locknar property. Garden walks will be held at 10:00am and 11:30am on Saturday.
Get inspired and participate in the WPPC's Walks on the Wild Side program. Seeing is believing. Enjoy natural gardens up close with WPPC members as tour guides. Ask questions and learn first-hand about the benefits, challenges, and successes of various property owners. Come away with ideas and a better understanding of things you can do in your own garden.
One more walk is scheduled in 2021. Click HERE to view the last two Garden Walk dates.
