In this webinar, EBMUD Water Conservation Representative, Jessica Woodard and California Native Plant Society Horticultural Outreach Manager, Ann Marie Benz will discuss the benefits of native plants and plant design considerations such as texture, color, shape and size. A variety of plant lists and design tools will be introduced to help gardeners create a beautiful garden that saves water, and supports birds, butterflies, and beneficial insects.

People are highly influenced by their neighbors so by getting going on your garden, you may end up with a street full of beautiful gardens!
