Native Plants Important to Bass Islands

Put in BayJoin Lake Erie Islands Conservancy on Thursday, April 27, 2017, at the Put-in-Bay Town Hall, at 7:00pm, to hear Gale Martin’s presentation “Why Native Plants Matter.” Gale operates Natives in Harmony, a plant nursery dedicated to the production of native wildflowers, forbs (a herbaceous flowering plant), and trees.  Natives in Harmony provides the plants for our annual LEIC Native Plant Sale. Gale will focus on why native plants are so important for garden and restoration efforts and then focus also on her own growing efforts. This program will show how  important it is for pollinators, birds, and wildlife to have native plants as part of our Bass Islands preserves, landscape, and backyards.
