Program Description

Event Details

Our presenter, environmental educator and naturalist, Dennis Swiftdeer Paige will talk about how a residential association transformed its lawn into an unfolding range of stunning multi-seasonally colorful prairie, woodland, and wetland wildflowers, forbs, sedges, grasses, and rain gardens. 

As a recipient of the 2011 Conservation and Native Landscaping Award from the USEPA and the Chicago Wilderness,  WTTW Chicago Tonight described this condominium association as "probably the most extensive native gardens of any residential complex in the Chicagoland area." 

The presentation is based on his book Community Eco-gardens: Landscaping with Native Plants.
