Come celebrate 30 years of land protection work by our land trust! After our business meeting and before we celebrate our 30 years with cake, we’ll hear from a panel on Rhody Native. Rhode Island Natural History Survey botanist Hope Leeson will describe the Rhody Native program and its goal to promote the use of native plants grown from Rhode Island wild stock through seed collection and cuttings. Also joining the panel is Karen Beck, landscape architect, and retailers who offer these plants. We plan to have some available to view and purchase. The program is an opportunity to promote local Rhode Island businesses, educate the public about our native biodiversity, and improve our natural environment.
