Native Plant Demonstration Garden

Our Native Plant Garden serves as a demonstration of how planting native species can reduce water and maintenence costs. These species of plants are native to our area so they are more drought-tolererant than other plants commonly used in landscaping. By utilizing these plants and their adaptation to our environment, you can help conserve water and support habitats for native species such as the monarch butterfly.
