Spirea alba, White meadowsweet by Rebecca Mang

Boardman River Nature Center Native Display Gardens work bees

When

Tuesdays 5:00pm-7:30pm

Where

The Boardman River Nature Center, 1450 Cass Road, Traverse City, MI 49685

Who

All gardeners are invited to work on these native display gardens.

What

Native gardens are just like any other garden: they need tender loving care. Join garden curators Becky Mang-Nye and Martha Dively in their weekly maintenance of the gardens. You will learn how to maintain different styles of gardens such as rain gardens and butterfly gardens. Bonus: you will learn how to identify native plants!

Limited numbers of tools are available on site. Please consider bringing your own.

These gardens promote healthy ecosystems of all kinds. While we strive for a safe area, stinging insects and a variety of animal life may be present. Please wear long pants, long sleeved shirts, gloves, and any other items you may need to keep you safe. 

If you have any questions, please contact project leads: Extension Master Gardeners Becky Mang-Nye or Martha Dively.
