Although we'd rather be gathering outside, we are grateful to still be able to bring you this program virtually! June is the peak blooming time for some of our loveliest flowering shrubs, many of which also have tremendous value as host plants for the larvae of moths and butterflies.  Join Meredith to learn about the diverse mix of native shrub species found in our region. This workshop will cover the importance of woody plants in our gardens and ecosystems, and highlight 10-15 species that have tremendous potential for use in a variety of landscape settings.

Meredith Gallogly is the Manager of Programs at Grow Native Massachusetts. She is a skilled botanist, and much of her plant identification knowledge comes from her explorations of metro-Boston area parks and reservations. She holds a B.A. in Biology from Smith College.

This workshop will be conducted virtually by Zoom meeting.
