Plants with Purpose: Using Native Plants for Managing Stormwater
Join Emily DeBolt to learn about using native plants to protect local waterways with rain gardens and shoreline buffers. Emily will explain the basics of how these plantings work, and share some of her favorite native plants to use to create these functional and beautiful gardens.
Emily DeBolt owns Fiddlehead Creek Native Plant Nursery, which specializes in native plants for sustainable landscapes. She has years of experience working with natives as alternatives to invasives, as well as natives for rain gardens, pollinator gardens, shoreline buffers, and more. She and her husband Chris started Fiddlehead Creek in 2009 because of her love for native plants and her desire to make them more available in everyday landscapes.
Emily has her bachelor's degree from Cornell University and master's degree from SUNY-ESF. She is a Certified Nursery Landscape Professional (CNLP) through the NYS Nursery and Landscape Association. In 2012, Emily was selected as the New York Native Plant Conservationist of the Year by the New York Flora Association, and she currently serves as a board member of the New York Flora Association.
