Hartley Nature Center


Our presenter will be Jeff West, Manager of Boreal Natives.

Presentation Topic: Eye Candy and Brain Food

Jeff will treat our winter-weary eyes to a treat of flower photos, describing many of his favorite native plants, including their growth characteristics and best uses. Following the presentation Jeff will take questions on preparing your planting site, selecting plants, and maintenance.

  • Do you amend soils first, especially clay?
  • What is the best way to kill existing vegetation?
  • How is starting with seed different than live plants?
  • I scattered native plant seeds on the ground last fall; what do I do next?

Boreal Natives is a division of Prairie Restorations Inc, one of the upper Midwest’s first companies to specialize in native plant community restoration.

Socializing and snacks begin at 6:30PM. Presentation at 7:00.
