In 1999 I joined The Native Plant Center. As Assistant Director my days here at The Center are quite interesting. I oversee and maintain the website, blog, publications, events, marketing, media, membership and more. Over the past eleven years, I have come to embrace not only the beauty of native plants, but also the practicality of them. Wildflowers do so much for the wildlife and the environment around us. My hope is to share what I have learned over the years through this blog. Please visit the earliest posting (Feb., 2009) to get a sense of The NPC's mission, as well a why native plants are so great for you and the environment!
