Sonoma-Marin Eco-Friendly Garden Tour and Plant Sale

May 4 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

For the county’s spring Garden Tour, the Marin Chapter will be hosts at the new Native Plant Pollinator Garden they designed and planted in front of the Bay Model Visitor Center. The garden is over 100 feet long, and is planted with different wildlife habitats for songbirds, hummingbirds, and butterflies plus a monarch butterfly way station. Native bees use all of it. Each section of the garden focuses on the plants favored by that specific type of pollinator. There are currently over 75 native species in the garden. Water is provided by a solar-powered birdbath, a misting fountain for the hummingbirds and small puddles in boulders. Our purpose was to create a safe haven for these essential creatures, and we are grateful that the US Army Corps of Engineers enthusiastically embraced the idea.

The California Native Plant Society – Milo Baker Chapter will be presenting California native gardens in Sonoma County and will be holding a native plant sale at the Laguna Environmental Center.
