Why Natives PowerPointIf you would like to make a presentation on your own to your homeowners association (HOA), garden club, or other group, you may download this presentation for free from the FNPS website. Why Native Landscapes are Important. (It downloads as a pdf, but there is an embedded link to the PowerPoint.)

It includes a script that you can read that runs for about ten minutes. This makes the case for why natives are important even in HOAs.
