    July 19  6:30-7:30  Why Natives?: The true justification for cultivating native plants derives not from nostalgia or a geographical abstraction of where an ecosystem occurred historically but rather the interaction between plants and their ecosystem. To call a species native implies complex relationships with the regional ecosystem that go well beyond those observable on our temporal and spatial scale. We will explore a worldview that will challenge how you see and interact with both the cultivated and unmanaged ecosystems.                                                            
    July 26  6:30-7:30  Milkweeds for Monarchs: Participants will learn about the Monarch butterfly, and the dependence of the Monarch caterpillars on native milkweed for survival. Tips for plant selection and habitat creation techniques will be discussed. These important tips will support the creation of Monarch habitat restoration projects on the Eastern Shore.                                                                                                                                                                
    July 27  6:30-7:30  BMP Options for Stormwater Runoff: Participants will learn the defining characteristics of best management practices and what structures are available to take responsibility for the stormwater runoff at home and in their communities.
