For adults. Native Plant School is a year-round series of indoor/outdoor classes in the Whitmire Wildflower Garden at Shaw Nature Reserve that covers various aspects of native landscaping. Please bring your questions, comments, drawings, and plant specimens. Participation from the audience is encouraged. 

Do you have too much lawn or you have an unproductive hayfield? Are you sick of cutting grass or hay? Doug Tallamy states that there are over 40 million acres of lawn, more than all of the U.S. National Parks combined. It’s a good time to convert turf or field to prairie or savanna. Come learn how to create a natural-style landscape with high diversity and low maintenance.
