A number of gardeners, naturalists, scientists and college instructors are coming together  later this month to discuss native plants and why they are beneficial to your landscape projects.  It's being held February 26th at the N.O. Nelson Campus of Lewis & Clark Community College in Edwardsville.

Hosted by the Grow Native committee of the Missouri Prairie Foundation, the committee's Bill Rupert tells The Big Z the Keynote Presentation will be delivered by a man considered to be a "rock star" in the field, Doug Tallamy.
