Please join us on Saturday, April 26th from 9:00am – 11:00am for a presentation on California Native Plants from Roger Klemm, the Guerilla Gardener.  Roger is a native plant expert who is transforming gardens one at a time.  Learn how, where and when to plant natives for the best results.  Roger has also been instrumental in creating the Native Plant Seed Lending Library at the La Crescenta Public Library.  Learn about this exciting new program and how you can get free Native Plant seeds to plant yourself.

The Preserve is located at the north end of Rosemont Avenue, just past the chain link fence.  As street parking is limited, please park at Two Strike Park.  Please wear sturdy shoes and long pants.  This event is open to members of the public, suitable for all ages, and completely free, no reservations required.  In the event of rain, the tour will be canceled.  Sorry, no pets please.
