Become familiar with the beauty often taken for granted on our daily commutes and our weekend strolls. Join UDBG Director John Frett as we discuss the cultural (light and soil requirements, ease of growth) of these native beauties and how they may fit into your home landscape. The walk will provide an opportunity to view many of the plants "in person" and discuss their identification and culture more fully.
