Get CreNative & Plan Your Garden:  Fine-tune your plan with assistance from local experts.  Large printed maps of your property will be provided by the Wood Soil & Water Conservation District to help create a native landscape plan specific to your yard.  Resources on where and when to buy natives locally will also be provided to help put your plan into action. 

“Many of our residents are interested in adding natives to their landscaping but are worried that it will look too wild and wooly, upset their neighbors, or be in violation of City zoning laws.    Small patches of manicured lawn replaced with native landscaping can have tremendous environmental benefit, and we want to provide residents with the resources and the knowledge to do this successfully,” said Amanda Gamby, the City’s Sustainability and Public Outreach Coordinator.  

All classes will be held at the Veterans Building, located in Bowling Green City Park.  Registration is required and limited.  A $25 registration fee covers all classes and materials.  Register by emailing Cinda Stutzman at or by calling 419-353-0301.
