Native plants have an essential role in maintaining a healthy local ecosystem. They're important as wildlife habitat, food for pollinators, and soil builders.

On Saturday, May 31 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Columbus chapter of Wild Ones is holding a Native Plant Palooza at the First Unitarian Universalist Church, 93 W. Weisheimer Road in Columbus.

Gale Martin of the Natives in Harmony plant nursery will talk about growing native plants in your yard, and plants to use for rain and butterfly gardens. The family-friendly event will also include:

  • A wide selection of native plants for sale
  • A display of monarch caterpillars and butterflies
  • Arts, crafts, games, and face painting for children
  • A tour of the two rain gardens at First UU. Rain gardens reduce storm water runoff, enhance the quality of streams, and beautify neighborhoods.
