Stockton’s Red Maple Project & A Guide to Native Groundcovers
March 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Samantha Steele, Naturalist for Stockton’s Red Maple Project, will open our evening with a short talk about tapping maples and how you can get involved next winter by adopting a campus tree or by tapping the maples in your own yard. Do you enjoy real maple syrup? Come join us to find out how to make some yourself!
Following that discussion, Chapter Co-Leader Jesse Connor will present her newest program, A Guide To Native Groundcovers. In most cases, sustainable landscaping requires reducing the size of our lawns. As we add trees and shrubs we create layers of vegetation. Jesse will focus on the native understory layer. She’ll cover groundcovers that spread easily, those that are self-seeders, and finally those that spread and seed more aggressively. Jesse will explain the strategies of selecting and propagating the groundcovers that will work best in your own situation.
Both of these talks will be live, in-person presentations, and Samantha and Jesse will be with us in the classroom to answer your questions and share their wisdom.
