Gardener Sharon Turner leads a presentation called Better Buffer Zones at Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday, September 19 at 12:00 pm.

Whether we’re aware of it or not, all of us live in watershed- where all of the runoff and streams and rivers eventually lead. To protect these watersheds, the best thing homeowners can do is plant buffer zones that retain soil, prevent erosion, help biodiversity, and keep our rivers, lakes, and ocean clean. Sharon Turner will speak about how to plant different native plants for attractive buffer zones that protect aquatic habitat.

Turner is a certified Master Gardener, consultant, educator, and designer based in Washington, ME. She specializes in heirloom and open-pollinated vegetable and flower seedlings, as well as native perennials, shrubs, and trees. She regularly teaches adult education courses for Five Town CSD.

This lecture is part of the Summer Talk series at Merryspring, sponsored by The First National Bank. Admission to Tuesday talks is $5, with free admission for members of Merryspring.
