Plant A Wildflower Sanctuary
Grass lawns provide nothing for wildlife. A small plot of wildflowers, on the other hand, means food and a home. Planting a 10x15' plot is both easy and relatively low maintenance. Classes and free seed are provided by Tristate CC in March and April. Request to be notified by emailing us.
