Stack on native plants

BAR HARBOR — Lois Berg Stack, professor emerita of sustainable agriculture at the University of Maine, will give a presentation on native plants at the Bar Harbor Garden Club’s monthly meeting on Thursday, March 14, at 1 p.m. at the Birch Bay Village Inn.

Many local gardens host native plants such as white pine, red oak, viburnums and winterberry, but there are hundreds of other native plants that can provide beauty and function in local landscapes. This presentation will cover some choice native plants, how they can contribute to the landscape, and where to find reliable information about them.

Stack served as University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s ornamental horticulture specialist for 30 years. During this time, she conducted research, held classes and workshops for landscape professionals and home gardeners, trained students, and developed publications on many plant-related topics.

This meeting is free and open to the public. Non-members are asked to reserve a seat at [email protected] or call 460-8496. Light refreshments will be served.

The Bar Harbor Garden Club is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Maine and National Garden Clubs, Inc.
