GNPS is partnering with Trees Atlanta to present the October Speaker Series in Trees Atlanta.
Title: “The Importance of Native Plants in Urban Landscapes”
Description: Plants are essential in our urban landscapes: they help reduce water run-off, absorb air pollution, and decrease urban heat-island effects. Native plants do more: they also reconnect our gardens and parks to nature, supporting birds, pollinators, beneficial insects, and native ecosystems. Learn more about how native plants and plant communities bring nature back to the city, and which plants are best.
