Native Plants in Missouri

5/6/2023 | Watkins Woolen Mill State Historic Site | Lawson, MO

Nearly 2,000 plant species are native to Missouri. They are the foundation of many facets of our economies – from timber production to outdoor recreation – and form the backbone of our agricultural history. Today, there are new uses of native plants that improve quality of life for all, including creation of pollinator habitat, reduction of nature-deficit disorder, stormwater management, and carbon storage.

In her presentation, Hayley Howard will share past, present and potential future uses of native plants in Missouri communities.

This presentation is sponsored by the Missouri Speakers Bureau. The Missouri Speaker Bureau is jointly organized and managed by Missouri Humanities and the State Historical Society of Missouri.

Presentation Time: 11 a.m. - noon
