Auburn University: Learn about native plants

Auburn University's Donald E. Davis Arboretum will host a class about choosing plants that are good for our native landscape and avoiding ones that threaten it.

The hour-long program "What's So Great About Native Plants" will be offered Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. at the Davis Arboretum Pavilion.

A representative from the Alabama Invasive Plant Council will present information on which plants present the most severe threat to our native landscape and how to indentify them. The arboretum staff will discuss the best native plants to grow in this area as well as the connection between the wild creatures we enjoy, their food and their habitat..

Pre-registration is $15. Registration the day of the event is $18. The fee includes two books.
