Landscapers and property owners can register now for this March 14 event.     

Deciding which plants to use for a foundation, privacy hedge, groundcover, or other landscaping project can be a challenge. Often, we use what we see growing in our region — plants that have become familiar to us — sometimes without knowing if these plants support or harm North Carolina’s coastal environment.

The Coastal Landscapes Initiative has identified landscaping plants to avoid because they are “bad actors.” The CLI team also has hand-picked attractive eco-friendly plants to use instead.

Join the CLI team online for a free one-hour presentation to hear insights and advice we’ve gathered from experts at North Carolina Aquariums in Manteo and Pine Knoll Shores, Coastal Roots Garden Design, North Carolina State Extension coastal county offices, coastal chapters of the North Carolina Native Plant Society, and North Carolina Sea Grant.

Presenters will include Gloria Putnam of North Carolina Sea Grant, Amy Mead of North Carolina State Extension for New Hanover/Pender/Onslow County, and Shawn Banks of North Carolina State Extension for Carteret County.

Professional Development Credits are available:

  • NC Landscape Contractor License Landscape/Technical credit
  • NC Environmental Educator Program (Environmental Education Certification credits under Criteria III or continuing education)
  • NC Master Gardener (information at local Cooperative Extension County Offices)

Date and time: March 14, 9:30 a.m. on ZOOM.
