Native Plant Collaborative Series – Native Plant Hike!
Join Eric Fuselier on a Native Plant Hike on Lake Leatherwood trails. Eric serves as a national director for Wild Ones: Native Plants, Natural Landscapes, a non-profit whose mission is to “promote environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity through the preservation, restoration, and establishment of native plant communities.”
It’s early spring and there is much to observe. Please meet up in the Lake Leatherwood Parking lot by the Marina for this two-hour hike.
This program continues the series of free educational programs and workshops offered at the Eureka Springs Community Center and produced by the Eureka Springs Parks & Recreation, the Northwest Arkansas Master Naturalists, the Carroll County Master Gardeners, and Wild Ones – Ozark Chapter. These great groups have formed a collaborative to propagate native plants for use in Eureka Springs parks and to share their knowledge with the rest of us.
Native plant hikes and seed collection events will also begin this spring, with propagation of native plants in the community greenhouse beginning in the fall. Those who participate in volunteer workdays will receive free native seeds and native plants to take home with them.
