The Marinette County Consolidated Library System and UW-Madison, Division of Extension are collaborating to bring area residents the opportunity to learn more about what perennial plants are facing and how people can help them.

This live webinar event will be held Tuesday at 2 p.m. Scott Reuss, extension horticulture agent, will lead the discussion and showcase the problems that plants are facing and how they may show that they are stressed. Many plants may not show symptoms this year, even though they are actually experiencing major stress. After reviewing the problems and the plant symptoms, the discussion will switch to the types of management practices gardeners can do which help plants overcome these stressors.

To join in this opportunity, people may register on the Stephenson Public Library’s Facebook page or send an email to Mariel Carter at Participants will be sent a link to attend the free webinars.

If people have any other horticultural questions, they may contact Reuss by phone at 715-732-7510 or email to
