Just because something grows in New Jersey – thrives in New Jersey – doesn’t mean it should be planted in New Jersey. Want to know what to plant and why? The Native Plant Society of New Jersey has super-informed people who would love to tell you. The nonprofit organization founded in 1985 is dedicated to the appreciation, protection and study of the state’s native flora…On Nov. 2, both groups [including the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Ocean County] will host "Plants and Sandy" at Ocean County College in Toms River, encouraging the use of replanting with native plants in the watershed. The Partnership consists of federal, state, municipal, academic, business and private organizations that work together with the communities of the Barnegat Bay watershed.
