The Foundation for Sunset Hills will inaugurate its new community speakers series by presenting Elizabeth Struckhoff of the Missouri Botanical Garden to speak on “Designing With Nature In Mind.”

This presentation will explain how to design with native plants, create a habitat appealing to wildlife and demonstrate how a native landscape can reflect a homeowner’s tastes while supporting the ecosystem.

The presentation is Wednesday, March 13, 7 p.m., at the Sunset Hills Community Center, 3915 S. Lindbergh Blvd. Light refreshments will be served. The event is free and open to the public. Call Gerald Brown at the Sunset Hills Parks and Recreation office to reserve a spot, 314-842-7265.
