Native Gardens for Home Landscapes will be presented at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, April 11, at the  Northland Aboretum, Brainerd.

It’s hosted by Brainerd Chapter Wild Ones and Eleanor Burkett.

Native gardens don't have to be huge land restorations. This session will focus on incorporating native gardens of small to moderate size into a home landscape.  In addition to “how to” tips, there will be a discussion of surprises and “lessons learned” based on Burkett’s experience with home landscape and her work designing, implementing and maintaining native gardens.

Burkett is an Extension educator in water resources for the University of Minnesota Extension and a founding member of the Brainerd Chapter of Wild Ones.

Wild Ones promotes environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity through the preservation, restoration and establishment of native plant communities. Visit www.brainerdwildones.com or e-mail brainerdwildones@ ymail.com for more information.

Cost is $3, free for Wild Ones members.
