Native Gardens Through the Seasons: A Virtual Walk 



Get a virtual, behind-the-scenes look at three gorgeous, Oak Park and Berwyn native gardens though the seasons! 

To help keep everyone safe during the pandemic, we transformed our annual garden walk into a live webinar. If you missed the webinar, you can watch the “tour” here: Virtual Tour Recording

You’ll learn from three outstanding home gardeners who together bring more than 50 years of experience of gardening with native plants.


  • How three particular native gardens perform year-round.The fascinating birds, butterflies, native bees and other beneficial wildlife our featured gardens attract. 
  • How you can bring native plants into your own yard.
  • Practical, hands-on information and tips to help you see how affordable and rewarding native gardening can be.
  • The importance of nurturing the soil.
  • Spring maintenance practices.
  • Plants that can transform shady understories and other difficult areas.  
  • And more!
