THOMASTON — Wild Seed Project founder Heather McCargo will present Understanding the Fascinating Life Cycles of Native Plants: Flowering, Pollinators and Seed Dispersal, Wednesday, July 20, at 6 p.m., at the Thomaston Library.

The Thomaston Library and the Cushing Public Library are cosponsoring the live presentation.

In this live presentation, McCargo showcases the fascinating reproductive life cycles of various plants native to New England and explains how people can change their landscaping practices to support wild plants and the pollinators and other wildlife that depend on them.

McCargo describes simple outdoor seed-sowing methods that anyone can do to help increase native plant populations.

“This practice is a great way to protect the genetic diversity of our native flora and produces an abundance of plants inexpensively,” said Cushing Public Library, in a news release. “Be part of a grassroots movement to sow native seeds!”

Join the libraries for this free and informative live presentation to preserve native plants.
