Sunday October 13

2:00 PM  –  4:00 PM

Preregistration required. A program geared toward adults.
Registered program participants should meet in the auditorium at our Rowe Woods Visitor Center.

Does your yard have a lot of shade, soggy wet areas or dry slopes? Join Denice Robertson of Pollinator Plant Design as we reveal how to design beautiful habitats using native plants that are well adapted to those tough locations.

About the Instructor:  Denice Robertson has a PhD in Ecology and is faculty at Northern Kentucky University. She is involved in research on prairie restoration specifically on increasing the success of milkweed. In addition, Denice owns Pollinator Plant Design which is a garden design company focused on creating gardens using native plants that enhance the natural habitat and provide food, shelter and host plants for pollinators. She has experience dealing with poor drainage, creating a pollinator paradise in a shady yard and working with areas that contain multiple conditions. She focuses on creating a habitat that works with existing conditions as there are many native plants to enrich any area regardless of the amount of light or water.
