"Making Our Landscape Great Again."
Speakers: Nan & Mark Plunkettwill
The Program will show the transformation, using mainly native plants, of their suburban landscape and the joy that they have gained through this change. Mark has taken some stunning photos of the various kinds of wildlife that regularly visit their 1/2-acre property on the west side of Cincinnati. This journey will be presented through a PowerPoint presentation.
Nan & Mark will share what joys they have discovered while transforming their half-acre suburban lawn into a (mostly) native garden for bugs, bees, butterflies and other wildlife. Now a NWF Certified Wildlife Habitat and Monarch Waystation, the Plunketts' garden has enabled them to rear and release over 1,500 monarch butterflies over the past several years. In sharing the story of their garden, the Plunketts hope to motivate and inspire others to take time to stop, brush aside the bumble bee, and smell the milkweed.
