Incorporating Native Plants into Your Garden

Join us for an enlightening lecture with Maxine Da-Som Yoon, Anne Arundel County Master Gardener Coordinator, as she unveils the vital role native plants play in our ecosystem. Discover the intricate relationships between native plants and the insects that depend on them for survival. Maxine will expertly guide attendees through the myriad benefits these plants offer, not only to our local wildlife but to the environment as a whole through ecosystem services. This presentation will also provide practical advice on how home gardeners can incorporate low-impact and conservation landscaping techniques into their gardens. Learn how to transform your outdoor space into a thriving haven for native plants and pollinators, contributing to biodiversity and ecological health in your own backyard.
