Native Plants and Climate Change: Finding Hope in Natives

Native plants bring hope to rural and urban landscapes as they provide habitat for pollinators, absorb stormwater and pollutants and create natural beauty. Join Lizzy Jenny of the Florida Native Plant Society as she shares the many benefits of natives and the challenges facing native plant communities in adapting to shifts in temperature and rainfall due to climate change.

Lizzy Jenny is president of the Longleaf Pine Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society. She is herself a native of Southern Maryland and studied biology at the College of Charleston and received a Masters degree in Sustainable Landscape Design from George Washington University. She has worked with the University of Maryland’s Center for Environmental Science as a faculty research assistant, as an environmental consultant with HDR architecture and engineering firm, and most recently as a civilian with the US Navy.
