Grow Native! Mingle with Native Plant Professionals and Author Alan Branhagen March 16, 2017

in News

Free event held at Schlafly Tap Room, 2100 Locust, in St. Louis will be Alan Branhagen’s last lower Midwest public appearance before he leaves state for new position. Purchase a copy of his book at the event and have it signed by the author.

You’ve heard about all the benefits of native plants, but perhaps you don’t know how to get started choosing them for your own yard or property?

The Second Annual Grow Native! Mingle with Native Plant Professionals is designed to help you learn more about natives—in an informal setting—with native plant professionals, so you can get your questions answered and learn more about how native plants support songbirds and pollinators, and how to increase the ecological functionality of your yard or property.

As this event, to be held on March 16, 2017 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Schlafly Tap Room, 2100 Locust in St. Louis, you can meet with local native plant designers and land care professionals, and hear a great presentation from Powell Gardens Director of Horticulture Alan Branhagen, also author of the new book Native Plants of the Midwest. This will be Branhagen’s last public appearance in the lower Midwest before he leaves Missouri for a new position in Minnesota.

Grow Native! will have copies of Branhagen’s book available for sale—a portion of proceeds supports the Grow Native! program—and Branhagen will be available to sign your copy.

Event is free, but a $10 suggested donation will support the Grow Native! program and St. Louis Audubon. No RSVP required. Food and drink may be purchased on site.

Grow Native! is a 17-year-old native plant marketing and education program serving the lower Midwest. Grow Native! is administratively housed by the nonprofit Missouri Prairie Foundation.
