The American Society of Landscape Architects created this animated video entitled “Designing Neighborhoods for People and Wildlife.” It’s good to see another national organization promoting the importance of native plants and habitats.
Note: Once the video starts, click the icon between “HD” and “Vimeo” in the lower right corner to see it in full-screen mode.
The Native Plant School, co-sponsored by St. Louis Wild Ones, is a year-round series of mostly outdoor learning sessions in the Whitmire Wildflower Garden at Shaw Nature Reserve. They will cover various aspects of native home landscaping and prairie/savanna/wetland re-establishment. Please bring your questions, comments, photos, drawings, plant specimens, etc. for these three-hour discussion sessions. Scott Woodbury and guest experts will lead the discussions, hands-on tours and demonstrations. Participation from the audience is encouraged.
Wild Ones enjoying the November potluck meal
Members were joined by three guests at our annual potluck dinner and seed exchange, held at the First Presbyterian Church of Kirkwood.
Copies of our chapter membership list and the 2013 meeting and event calendar were distributed.
Several members described successes and challenges of the year in their gardens, including effects of heat and drought.
