Get a Jump on Spring Garden Planning with APIPP’s Webinar, Native Plants for Adirondack Landscapes

As the snow melts and red-winged blackbirds arrive, it is time to think spring gardens! And you can support wildlife and help keep invasive species out of the Adirondacks by planting native gardens. Join the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP) on Wednesday, April 6 at 10 am for a free webinar to learn how to design beautiful landscapes using native plants.

Gardening with plants native to our area is a great way to support habitat diversity and avoid the introduction and spread of invasive species that can harm the region’s economy and ecology. Native plants are well-adapted to our climate and soil, which makes them a good fit for gardeners of all experience levels. They are also less expensive and time-consuming to maintain.

Native plant expert Emily DeBolt will lead the workshop and discuss how to plan your gardens to support a diversity of plants and pollinators and the common plants that can become invasive in your landscape. She will also introduce you to many of the native plants available for gardening and share the benefits of gardening with natives. Emily has years of experience working with native plants and was selected as the New York Native Plant Conservationist of the Year by the New York Flora Association.

This spring, make a difference in your own backyard by planting native gardens to cultivate sustainable habitats and reduce the spread of invasive species.
