City offers free guided native plant tours

By Staff | Feb 1, 2010

Do you want to reduce your water bill? Do you want to reduce the amount of fertilizer used on your property? Want to attract birds and butterflies to your property? Want to view beautiful, colorful native vegetation in field conditions?

Then mark your calendar for the upcoming guided native plant tours.

The City of Sanibel Vegetation Committee will offer guided native plant tours of City Hall grounds, which have been planted solely with native plants, on the following dates:

Feb. 10 and 27

March 10 and 27

April 14 and 24

Vegetation Committee members will provide information on proper planting and care of native vegetation. The City of Sanibel encourages planting of vegetation that is indigenous to the area as it requires very little maintenance, no fertilizer and no supplemental irrigation.

The guided tours begin promptly at 10 a.m. Pre-registration is not required. Attendees meet at the main entrance to City Hall, located at 800 Dunlop Road, in front of the main staircase. For additional information regarding the guided native vegetation tours, contact the City’s Natural Resources Department at 472-3700.
