MEDIA RELEASE: Native Plant Workshop at the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area

For Immediate Release                                                                 March 22, 2013


Native Plant Workshop

at the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area


Ever wondered about native alternatives to invasive species that are commonly planted in gardens? Conservation Sudbury, in cooperation with special guest Aisha Chiandet will be presenting a Native Plants Workshop - Urban Gardens Featuring Native Plants! The workshop will be held on on Saturday, April 13, 2013 at the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area Nature Chalet (2309 South Bay Rd.), from 10:00 a.m. – Noon.

Participants will learn the benefits of introducing native wildflowers and shrubs to their garden or shoreline, and how to identify, source and grow native plants. They will receive resource materials on how to get started with native plants and how to identify and eradicate invasive species. Each participant will also obtain hands-on experience planting a native flower and/or grass to take home with them at the end of the workshop.

The cost of the event is $15.00 per person, which will be used to help cover travel expenses for our guest speaker, resource and planting materials, and complimentary hot beverages and light snacks for participants.

Space is limited to 30 participants. To reserve your spot or for more information, please call: (705) 674-8904 or email:

We run monthly events at the Conservation Area all year long - stay updated by visiting the Conservation Sudbury’s website or find us “Friends of Lake Laurentian” on facebook.

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.
