AMLT has developed two new interpretive native plant gardens to give tribal members a place to steward and harvest edible, medicinal, and useful plants and to share knowledge about native plants with the public. We can always use more volunteers to help us maintain the gardens and we hope you will join us at these upcoming work days.
