KNPS Online Programming Announcement, April 2020

With Kinnikinnick Native Plant Society programs cancelled for May and maybe even June, we thought we’d offer up some enticing online program options for our members and others interested in native plants and their landscapes. Here are four options on a wide range of interesting topics, including videos on soils, mushrooms, and native plant landscaping, and a digital exhibition about Rachel Carson and her revolutionary book, Silent Spring.
