Spring is a wonderful season to showcase the variety of native plants in Glen Providence Park!  Enjoy an afternoon walk through the glen while garden coach Marcia Tate and plant enthusiast Shannon Davidson point out native trees, shrubs, and perennials in the park – while highlighting their many uses, and spectacular beauty, for landscaping.

Learn how native plants provide habitat protection and can be used in a local garden, whether a home, school, apartment, or business. We’ll also look for native ephemeral (short-lasting) flowers, buds, and other signs of Spring.
