Invite Nature into Your Garden with Native Plants

Wildlife is running out of space. Birds, bees, and butterflies are in decline. Wildflowers are disappearing from our roadsides. But we can take action to reverse this trend by making wise planting choices in our own yards. Come and learn how to turn your yard into a habitat for the wild creatures you love.

This program is offered in partnership with the Concord Garden Club, Friends of the Jackson District Library-Concord Branch and the Concord Branch library.

Presented by Betty Seagull, Board Member of the Wildflower Association of Michigan and past President of Wild Ones, Red Cedar Chapter. Betty is an enthusiastic gardener and nature lover.

Let’s Talk About: A Storytime for Tough Topics

Why can’t anyone say my name? Why is my friend’s skin darker than mine? Why are people standing in line for food?

Kids ask tough questions.
With all they see and hear in the media, as parents and caregivers, we often don’t have all the answers.
Beginning this fall, children ages 5-9 with parents and caregivers are invited to a Storytime for Tough Topics. Community experts will help foster and guide conversations on topics such as stereotypes, race and poverty through children’s literature in a safe, age-appropriate environment.
