ENC’s horticulture interns have also been busy propagating species like Eriogonum gigantea (Queen Anne’s lace), Beach strawberry, Woodland strawberry, Bladderpod, Arroyo Willow and more. Purchase beautiful and engaging native plants to enjoy year-round. They will provide habitat and encourage birds and butterflies to visit your yard. Proceeds benefit environmental education in the community. ENC members receive a 10% discount. For more information and a list of native plants for sale, go here.

Following the native plant sale, come join the walk when herbalist William Broen will discuss traditional and modern uses of plants as well as how a plant’s survival tactics affect how they are used by us, how we can tell a lot about plants through our senses, plant folklore and other related topics.
