The Lake Roland Nature Council is hosting a sale of native plants. (Rain date: Sunday, May 3rd)
Professional gardeners will be on hand to help participants learn about the importance of landscaping with plants native to the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Native plants are easier to maintain, and specific selections influence the lives of butterflies, birds and other wildlife. A variety of deer resistant plants will also be available for sale. Participants are encouraged to bring photos or sketches of their gardens to receive expert planting advice.
The sale takes place near the Lake Roland Dam; enter from the Lakeside Drive entrance to the Park or from the Falls Road light rail parking lot (take the boardwalk entrance into the park).
The sale is held in conjunction with the Guilford Garden Club; proceeds from the sale will go towards improvements at the park and the Guilford Garden Club scholarship fund.
While at the sale, visitors are encouraged to check out plans for the proposed Lake Roland Nature Center which will provide year-round education and meeting space near the Ranger Station.
Please pass this information along to friends and colleagues and post our Native Plant Sale Flyer for others to see.
