September 22: Paul LaPorte “Building Biodiversity with Native Plants”

Paul LaPorte is the owner of Ephemeral Ark Nursery (specializing in native woodland species) and consultant on ecological gardening and design. Living in the Greenbelt of the GTA, he has taken the opportunity to steward and study numerous native plant communities within multiple ecotypes and varied microclimates. Paul maintains a strong knowledge of Ontario native plant species and their communities and fosters them in his own gardens. He is the current chair of the Ontario Native Plant Growers Association, a past member of Kawartha Conservation’s BlueScape Steering Committee, the past President of the North American Native Plant Society and the past Vice Chair of the Scugog Environmental Advisory Committee. He has had the pleasure of presenting for numerous organizations on the importance of native plants to our ecology.

NOTE:  Paul has requested that we DO NOT RECORD this month’s engagement as some of the material has propriety rights with agreed upon terms of use.  We do hope that everyone can join us live on Zoom that evening. A link will be sent to members a few days prior to the event.
