Native plant tours offered at City Hall
The City of Sanibel Vegetation Committee is offering guided native plant tours of City Hall grounds, which have been planted solely with native plants and may attract birds and butterflies.
Due to the positive response earlier this year, the City of Sanibel Vegetation Committee is again offering guided native plant tours of City Hall grounds, which have been planted solely with native plants, on the following dates:
• Saturday, Nov. 20 at 10 a.m.
• Wednesday, Dec. 8 at 10 a.m.
The City Hall wildflowers are showing their colors and are in full bloom. Come walk the grounds for ideas on planting native vegetation that requires no fertilizer. Come see how you can plant a garden that reseeds itself with very little maintenance, is good for the environment and will attract birds and butterflies.
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 tour begins promptly at 10 a.m. 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 tour, contact the City’s Natural Resources Department at 472-3700.
