LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The University of Louisville plans to hold a workshop on plants that are native to Kentucky.

A statement from the school says the free workshop featuring nursery owner Margaret Shea will be held March 20 at the Cultural Center on UofL’s Belknap campus.

Justin Mog, assistant to the provost for sustainability initiatives, says native plant species are important to the environment even in urban areas. They help conserve water, attract wildlife and reduce the use of fertilizers and pesticides.

Mog said Shea has more than two decades of experience in natural areas management, restoration and biological inventory.
