Event description

Description

Join Paul LaPorte on Wednesday April 25th, for a discussion of the numerous threats to the survival of native plants and the organisms that depend on them since the time of European settlement. Attention will be placed on the importance of native plants to our ecology and how habitat loss, fragmentation, naturalized and invasive species impact biodiversity.

Paul LaPorte is the owner of Ephemeral Ark Nursery (specializing in native woodland species). Living in the Greenbelt of the GTA, he has stewarded and studied numerous native plant communities within multiple ecotypes and varied microclimates. He maintains a strong knowledge of Ontario native plant species and regularly consults on ecological gardening and design. Paul is a past president of the North American Native Plant Society and is a passionate advocate on the importance of native plants.

Register online and receive a free packet of local native plant seeds at the door. Your name will also be included in a draw for a NANPS Plant Sale* voucher (*the NANPS Plant Sale will be held at TBG on Saturday May 5th).

Paul will also be presenting a talk "Tracing the Roots of Native Plants" on Wednesday April 11th, at the TBG. Tickets are available here.
