Catherine Zimmerman, author and documentary film maker will present on Urban and Suburban Meadows at Trinity Lutheran Church, 955 James Street in Frankfort. Catherine will offer a presentation on techniques to establish a meadow in an urban or suburban setting. Meadows/grasslands replacing turf grass is a hot topic currently. The habitat created and species supported is well worth the effort for individual homeowners.
The following day, Thursday, July 18, there will be visits to meadow sites. Beginning at the Arcadia Dunes Dry Upland Grassland we will experience a variety of medium and tall Michigan native grasses and forbs on a large scale. Next, we will visit the home of Mary and Rich Devon on Bankston Road in Benzie County to view their grassland installation around their home. Lastly, we will visit 1-2 more sites with small meadow installations locations TBD, likely in the Frankfort area.
