Landscaping and gardening with plants native to Maryland makes gardening easier and benefits the world around you. By planting native, you can save on the cost of water, fertilizer, and pesticides while providing a habitat for butterflies, insects and other local wildlife. Feel good about your garden or yard this year by purchasing native plants from a host of vendors with a portion of proceeds from the sale benefiting educational programs at the Nature Center. If you are new to using native plants, don’t worry. Special guest speakers provide information on the “how to’s” of using natives. See www.howardcountymd.gov/RNCplantnative.htm for details on speakers and other activities. No registration necessary. Recommended age is 12 yrs+. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Info: 410-313-0400. Event is FREE.
