As we move into the summer months the Lumberton Campus Meadow is coming alive with color in the form of native plants. We are pleased to see blooms and color. The cheerful Rudbeckia hirta, Black Eyed Susan, is located throughout the Meadow for all to enjoy, while in other areas drifts of native grasses, Butterfly weed and verbena are taking hold. At the same time, we continue work to eliminate invasive weeds, allowing space for the plants to fill in. Special thanks to Miriam Swartz, Lumberton Campus resident, for sharing her photos.
