Thanks to everyone who joined us on Saturday, May 23 for our first webinar “Planting Forward.” We loved sharing this plan with you, and appreciated the enthusiastic response and questions shared via the webinar chat and in the survey after.
For those of you who were unable to join us, the video is now live on YouTube. You can find it here, or you can check back in on the Events page on this site for the video link.
We are working on a Q&A document that will be included as a resource on our website as quickly as we can. A lot of questions center around the “what should I plant?” theme. One of our favorite conservationists, Doug Tallamy, has been working with the US Forrest Service, the National Wildlife Federation, and the University of Delaware on a native plant finder database. The database can be found at https://www.nwf.org/
NativePlantFinder/. Simply plug in your zip code and find flowering plants, bushes and shrubs, and trees native to your area. The database is still in “beta” mode, with updates rolling out frequently (for instance, photos are still be added). If you register on the site, you can even save lists of plants you’re interested in.
