If you've ever wanted to put an attractive, pollinator-friendly garden or landscape in your yard, this is the year, and now is the time to get planting! Plant by Numbers is an initiative inspired by those fun (and easy) paint-by-numbers activities we enjoyed as kids. Pick up some ideas on how to create a beautiful garden of your own with low-maintenance plans and plants. Visit Isle a la Cache Preserve to get inspired by the terraced pollinator garden and the museum landscaping. The emerging plants will be labeled so you can correlate them to some of the mature plants and flowers in the easy-to-use color planting templates and guides available at Isle a la Cache Museum during regular museum hours.
