Meadowbrook Monday

August 7, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

Front of Meadowbrook Nature Preserve's Native Garden

Come show our native garden some love!

The native plants growing out in front of the conservation center at Meadowbrook are an inspiring and hardy testament to our region’s original botanical diversity.  They also represent an essential stop on the daily journeys of our local pollinators.  It takes work and dedication, though, to keep invasives away and the weeds at bay.  You can help us tidy up the garden, remove some non-native plants, and spend some time on a Monday morning with other plant-lovers and naturalists-by-nature.
