Wednesday, March 18, 7:00 p.m. Join native plant landscaper Kathy Ross for a talk about “The Dynamic Relationship of Native Plants, Insects and Birds.” Inspired by the research of Dr. Doug Tallamy, the discussion will explore why we need our native insects and the vital role native plants play in their survival, and how to use native plants in landscaping to promote biodiversity and encourage healthy environments for humans and birds. We can make a difference in our own backyards! North Valley Community Hall, 235 Nucleus Ave., Columbia Falls. Bring some food and join us at 5:30, before the program, to plan Flathead Chapter events for 2020.
Tuesday, April 21, 6:00 p.m. Native Plant Trivia Night. Grab some friends, have a beer, and put on your thinking cap! From 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., each brew sold will benefit MNPS, so bring a designated driver and prepare to support native plants. Backslope Brewing, 1107 9th St. W (Hwy 2), Columbia Falls. (Note Tuesday, not Wednesday.)
