Class Description: 
Thursday, August 9
1 to 4 p.m.
 

Native Plant School is a year-round series of indoor/outdoor classes in the Whitmire Wildflower Garden at Shaw Nature Reserve that covers various aspects of native landscaping. Please bring your questions, comments, drawings, and plant specimens. Participation from the audience is encouraged. Native Plant School at Shaw Nature Reserve is underwritten by the Missouri Department of Conservation and Wild Ones Natural Landscapers.

 

Permanent water features like ponds and water gardens attract more wildlife than any feature in the Whitmire Wildflower Garden. They are home to wetland birds, dragonflies, frogs, salamanders, turtles, and the predators that eat them, including snakes and hawks. Ponds and water gardens with permanent water have special needs and plants. Come learn which plants grow in water and which grow just beyond the water edge. Also learn how to manage for problems associated with duckweed, algae, invasive species, pond leaks, and erosion. Designed for adults only.

 

Registration ends August 9 at 8 a.m.
