Garden Design program rescheduled for March 7

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society has rescheduled a program in Berkeley Springs for Wednesday, March 7, 10 a.m. The program was rescheduled from its original date of February 7 due to weather conditions.

The program will be held at the Morgan County Board of Education building at 247 Harrison Avenue.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome to attend.

The speaker will be James Dillon, a certified Horticulturalist who owns and operates Native Havens LLC, a landscaping and gardening firm in Kearneysville.

His presentation will emphasize the importance of considering plant functions as well as aesthetics in designing gardens, to ensure that the results are not only visually beautiful but resilient and beneficial to local birds and pollinating insects.

Dillon has a Bachelor of Science in Biology from East Carolina University and has been working in the field for more than 13 years, most notably at the Delaware Center for Horticulture.

His landscape and garden designs emphasize native plant selections, environmental benefits and low maintenance.

He has designed several rain gardens in the region and volunteers for the Monarch Alliance, designing butterfly waystations for them.
