Welcome to the Cardno Native Plant Nursery Virtual Open House 

While we can’t offer an in-person tour or our usual educational sessions, plant showcase, or networking opportunities just yet, we did want to let you know about what’s new and what’s happening at our facility in 2021. 

See our educational nursery videos below that will walk you through our nursery’s grounds, introduce some of our  products, and share how we’re helping promote the importance of native plants through the solar industry and services on free range installations.

Cities and their Rivers

Native plants can play a key role in restoring water ways. Take a tour through some of the projects where our plants have helped to revitalize rivers and the communities through which they flow.

Right-of-Way Habitat

There are thousands of miles of transmission lines that bring us our energy. See what is being done to make the best use of the land below those lines.

Charles B. Hayes Family Sculpture Park

Many people appreciate native plants for their ecological value, but their aesthetic value should not be overlooked. This attractive landscape shows that native plants can be an essential part of a profound aesthetic experience.
