Over 20 people attended the kickoff of LWI’s annual “Habitat Thursdays” outdoor event. This year, at the suggestion of Shawn McKnight, we decided to make it a tour of residential landscapes that have been naturalized with native plants. We would actually be visiting “Habitat Gardens”.

Garden-Tours-3-MM (more…)

Tour the new greenhouse facilities and see the habitat projects and native plant gardens on site.

The Green House is a native plant project focusing on growing native plants for the Aamjiwnaang community and surrounding Sarnia-Lambton Area.

Plant rescue and restoration, seed collection and cleaning, native plant propagation, multi-generation teaching and learning, ecology stewardship education, and reconnecting with the Earth are just some of the initiatives being pursued at the facility.

Meet at 10am on Virgil Street next to the Maawn Doosh Gumig Community and Youth Centre.
