Afternoon Lecture with Heather Liljengren: Harnessing the Resilience of Native Plants 

Tuesday, December 12, 1–3 p.m.

Having co-evolved with New Yorkers for centuries, our native plants are uniquely suited to thrive in the built environment. Heather Liljengren, a field botanist and seed collector, will discuss the advantages of using species native to your design site’s specific locality, including their ability to succeed in difficult growing conditions and help create sustainable, functioning ecosystems.


Registration is required for all afternoon lectures. Each lecture: NYBG Member $29 / Non-Member $35.
