Treasures Among Our Natives
Presented by Dr. Douglas W. Tallamy
Hosted by Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens and
The Radnor Conservancy
Join us for an afternoon with Dr. Douglas tallamy, author of bestselling book "Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native plants." A growing number of people are landscaping with native plants to help conserve local biodiversity, yet many know little about the animals they are helping. Tallamy will describe some of the fascinating ways in which animals interact with beautiful native plants growing right under our noses!
Anticipating, observing, and understanding these relationships will enrich our lives and further justify the use of natives in our yards. Don't miss out on this great opportunity to be inspired by some of the best plants Pennsylvania has to offer!
Cost $5.00 per person. Pre-registration is required, space is limited. Refreshments will be served.
More About Jenkins Arboretum
Jenkins Arboretum is a privately owned and operated natural arborteum that is open to the public free of charge 365 days per year. H. Lawrence Jenkins established the arboretum on his property as a memorial to his wife, Elisabeth Phillippe Jenkins, who was avid gardener. The Arboretum opened to the public in 1976. Views of the valley all the way to King of Prussia, as well as up-close views of nature can be seen along the 1.2 miles of paved pathways that wind through the 40+ acre site. The property features an education center that was finished in 2010 and five different garden areas, including Rhododendron Collection, Green Ribbon Native Plants®, The Woodland Garden, Wildflower Gardens and a Bog Garden
